The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM), opened in 1997, traces its roots to the colonial-period Raffles Library and Museum, founded in the middle of the 19th century. Singapore’s history as a port city that brought people together from all over the world is used in the museum as a means of examining the history of Asia. The objects presented here tell stories of the trade and the exchange of ideas that were the result of international commerce, as well as the flow of religions and faith through Asia. Director Kennie Ting has chosen his personal favourites from the collection, collaborating with ACM curators to provide readers with insightful descriptions of these masterpieces as well as a broad introduction to the museum.
