The Asian Civilisations Museum

Near Raffles’ landing site is the Asian Civilisations Museum, home to a magnificent collection of the artifacts of quite a few different Asian cultures.  It is in the Empress Building, named such in honour of Queen Victoria who then rejoiced in the title of Empress of India.
