2021 Museum Roundtable: Asian Civilisation Museum
"The former Empress Place Building is one of the architectural treasures in the Empress Place civic area overlooking the Singapore River. It was completed in 1867 and had originally been planned to be used as a courthouse but instead functioned as government offices until the late 1980s. Subsequent restorations and extensions have stayed faithful to the original neoclassical Palladian architectural style. Gazetted as a national monument on 14 February 1992, it is now known as the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM)."
