Museum is an urban area located in the Civic District in Central Singapore. The district plays a bridging role between two common areas in Central Singapore namely Downtown Core and Orchard Street.

Since its inception, the Museum Planning Area has been on the forefront in promoting tourism. This can be attributed to the fact that it has a record of ten historical monuments which richly detail Singapore’s history.
