Images of Singapore
Images of Singapore is an interactive museum situated in Sentosa Island. To merely describe it as a museum is a great injustice. With its lively 3-Dimension wax figurines, interactive features (including telephones for visitors hear first-hand accounts of those experiencing the Japanese invasion!) and even the smell of incense where the replica of a Chinese temple is on display; it is best described as a walk-through the history and culture of Singapore.
Though many of the cultures and history are familiar to me (Malaysia and Singapore history is intertwined), I still found it a very enjoyable experience. It would have been impossible to experience every single Chinese, Malay and Indian festival even as locals, so "experiencing" the different festivities here is indeed an experience to cherish.
