Nestled snugly in the heart of Chinatown, this elusive museum is a quiet, charmingly well-researched hymn to one of Singapore’s greatest loves: cash. Journey through the country’s history of coins and notes, from early colonial rule and World War II to Singapore’s first orchid series and the present portrait series, and check out rare collectables like the Harry Potter coin. Interactive displays that allow you to create coin rubbings and handle the metals used to make coins. Before you leave, pop your free souvenir token into the minting machine at the gift shop and watch it being minted right in front of you.
Must-see: A facsimile of the rare, highly prized $1 note by the New Oriental Bank Corporation Limited in the Victorian section.
