Home to over 1600 artifacts that trace the history of the varied cultures and civilizations of Asia, the second wing of the Asian Civilizations Museum is housed in the Empress Place Building. Named in honor of Queen Victoria and completed in 1867, the Palladian structure was built by convicts and first functioned as a courthouse. Over the years, the building housed many colonial administrative departments.
Today, this Neo-Classical structure showcases a wealth of exhibits in 11 themed galleries and four ACE (Asian Civilizations Education) Zones: South Asia, West Asia/ Islam, Southeast Asia and China. There is also a fascinating Singapore River Interpretive Gallery where the story of generations of immigrants who settled and worked on the banks of the Singapore River is told using old photographs.
