Passing by the museum
I always felt that the Singapore National Museum lacks of artifacts and content as compared to other museums internationally. Afterall, Singapore gained independence from Malaysia in 1965 so that makes it 49 years old this year which is considered a young nation comparing to countries like China or India. However, history aside, the building itself is the pride of the nation. It is beautiful and something to marvel at anytime of the day.
Ever since coming and based here in the island republic, I’ve visited the National Museum many times - may it be seasonal exhibition or talks by prominent writers or artists or just a weekend photowalk in the museum with friends.
The photos above were taken during one of my walks to the train station post-dinner one night. The lights that illuminated the whole museum definitely stood out among all other buildings around the area. The post processing of “B1” vsco filter adds a rich black and white tone to the photos giving it a timeless, classic look just like the museum.
