Situated on Stamford Road, Singapore History Museum is an excellent place to learn more about the fascinating history of Singapore. The museum was graciously founded in 1849 as a direct result of Sir Stamford Raffles’ advice. Singapore History Museum exhibits history and development of Singapore through a systematic and chronological display that rapidly draws the visitor to a deeper understanding of the city-state. The museum exhibits all important historical events including the origin, the immigration settlement and the independence from Malaysian rule. Also, there are displays on the progress in a three-dimension show. A large number of priceless antiques and national heritage are stored here as well such as Malay fishing Village, Haw Par Jade collection and a large collection of the past drawings by William Farguhar, who was the first British inhabitant in Singapore. All this gives you great insight into Singapore.
The history of Singapore Chinatown began in 1821 by the time Chinese immigrants moved from Fujian province of China.

Thian Hock Keng Temple, Chinese-style herbal shops, comfy tea houses, fortune tellers, lively night markets and chic pubs and restaurants located in Singapore Chinatown are the best evidence to prove this exceptional mixture.
