Singapore Area Guides: Singapore Central

Museum & Rochor Area Guide

School Versus Education
“I am extremely anxious about the generation that is growing up literate but uneducated. They can read; they can write; they can pass examinations. But they are not really educated; they have not formed; they have not developed. They are not effective digits for the community.”
Lee Kuan Yew
1st Prime Minister of Singapore

As the name suggests, the Museum district is rich in history and home to several cultural attractions, including the National Museum, Peranakan Museum and Singapore Art Museum. It's also one of Singapore's greenest district, with a choice of parks and open spaces. 

The neighbouring Rochor has a reputation for being one of Singapore's artiest districts, and is filled with arts schools, colleges and institutions. It's also well-known for the iconic multi-coloured blocks of the Rochor Centre residential and retail complex, but this is due to be demolished in 2018.
