End Point: Outside Asian Civilization Museum

Formerly the Empress Place Building (named after Queen Victoria), it was completed in 1867, and served at different times as a Court House, immigration department, and government offices.
Today, this immense museum gives you a priceless introduction into the world of Asian civilizations, beliefs, and traditions. And with over 1,600 treasured artifacts, set up along four geographical zones and thematic galleries, enhanced by hosts, “talking” computer guides, interactive video, ambient sound and lighting, for a state-of-the-art touch. There’s also a gallery dedicate to the history and people of the Singapore River, where you can easily gain an in-depth understanding of these early immigrants.
