The National Museum of Singapore was designed by architects Henry McCallum who designed the original version and J.F. McNair who designed the scaled down version. I am told that the architecture is a mix of classicial Neo-Palladian and Renaissance; I personally do not understand much of architecture beyond Gothic and Baroque: )
It occupies the status of a national museum in Singapore and also the oldest. Its history dates back to 1849 when it was started as a section of a library at Singapore Institution. It soon grew large enough to be a museum in its own right. After several relocations, the Museum was moved to its present site between Penang Road and Stamford Road in 1887.
