Singapore Musical Box Museum, Singapore

4.6
#30 of 87 in Museums in Singapore
Musical Boxes were an important symbol of European culture dating back to the 19th century and early 20th century.

Historical resources have shown that Singapore played an integral part in the progress and development of musical boxes in South-east Asia during that time frame.

In this Singapore’s first musical box museum, we aim to share the historical background from the rise to the fall of the musical boxes to how it made its way to Singapore in the 19th century to the public.

We aim to also, to function as a repository for academic research, education and above all, preservation of such artifacts in Singapore for future generations.

  • You get an individual tour and learn the history of music boxes. They play many old, old ones! They even have one that is 270 years old. Delightful guide.  more »

  • This place is amazing! Although a small museum, the tour and explanation given as well as seeing all the mechanics inside the musical boxes... just awesome! My family would be interested in workshops related to making of cylinder music boxes and even an observation opportunity to watch a craftsman repair the musical boxes. Thank you for this wonderful museum and the opportunity to learn more about musical boxes.
  • This is a hidden gem in Singapore. The guide was absolutely wonderful and took his time to tell us the history of the items in the museum. I never thought that there could be such interesting facts on just musical boxes and clockworks. Definitely worth a visit.
