Imaginative and immersive, Singapore's rebooted National Museum is good enough to warrant two visits. At once cutting-edge and classical, the space ditches staid exhibits for lively multimedia galleries that bring Singapore's jam-packed biography to vivid life. It's a colourful, intimate journey, spanning ancient Malay royalty, wartime occupation, nation-building, food and fashion. Look out for interactive artwork GoHead/GoStan: Panorama Singapura, which offers an audiovisual trip through the city-state's many periods. Free guided tours are offered daily, check website for times.

The museum's neoclassical wing, graced by a stained-glass rotunda, once housed the Raffles Museum and Library.
