Studying Singapore through a visit to the Museum

The greatest thing about studying in Singapore is being able to experience a piece of Southeast Asia!  Just yesterday, I went to the National Museum of Singapore.  Through this visit, I learned about the vast diversity of Singapore.  One of the exhibits I visited was on the history of food.  Knowing that Singapore is a food haven, I was not surprised by this exhibit.  In fact, I was amazed by it.  One portion of this exhibit detailed various spices and we were even able to smell some of them! 

I can still smell the spices!

An exhibit that did surprise me was one about the evolution of bags from paper to plastic.

My favorite exhibit was about Ancient Egypt.  I learned a lot about the culture and history of Ancient Egypt.  I could not believe that I was actually able to see real artifacts from thousands of years ago!

An actual MUMMY!

On the whole, I feel that this museum is a must see.
