Museum Series - Asian Civilisations Museum

This is the picture I took last nite of the Asian Civilisations Museum, fondly known as the ACM here in Singapore. I went to a musical performance just next to the museum, the Victoria Concert Hall. Since I had a museum post yesterday, I shall continue with museums :-)

They ACM is having a Japanese Mask Exhibition, called: "Hidden Faces : The Art of Japanese Mask". The exhibit will close tomorrow!! Got to make a quick trip down again.

ACM's collections are centres around the Southeast Asia, South Asia, West Asia and China collections. Pop by for a visit if you are around. Got a friend who works there, so giving her a free advert here :-)

Here's a tip, if you want to go in Free, visit on Friday nites, 7-9 PM! (They said discounted on their website, but in actually fact ...... fill in your own blanks, I did not say it here ok? haha )

Visit the ACM website at:

Photo magnifique, j'adore les lumieres sur les facades des maisons.
tu as le droit de prendre des photos a l'interieur du musée, car j'aimerais bien voir ce que cela donne, je suis fan de la culture asiatique.

Splendid photograph, I adore the lights on the frontages of the houses. you have the right to take photographs inside the museum, because I would like to see what that gives, I am fan of the Asian culture.

Bill, Kris,

Night shots do make the building looks really grand. Especially with the lighting effects they put on buildings.
