The Asian Civilisations Museum located at the historic Empress Place Building, is renowned for its broad yet integrated perspective of pan-Asian cultures and civilisations. It is also a popular venue to learn more about the history, heritage and arts of Singapore and Asia through programmes and exhibitions for families such as 'Once Upon a Time in Asia: The Story Tree' and 'China Mania: The Global Passion for Porcelain, 800 -1900'.
