Asia Civilisation Museum

Managed to find some time to go down to the Asia Civilisation Museum at Empress Place over the weekend with the family. There is an exhibition on Buddhism. The exhibition traces the journey of the monks, Faxian, Xuanzang, Yijing as they travel from China to India via the Silk Road. It features the Buddhist sights that they might have seen along the way. Also the various different Buddhist artifacts of the different regions and countries from China, South Asia and South East Asia.

Unfortunately, for security reasons (or so it say outside the main exhibition hall), no photography allowed and we had to hand over the camera and even handphones so couldn't take any photos inside. Not sure what they paranoid about? Understand the no photography rule cos flash can be very distracting but 'security'? What do they think visitors will do to the antiques with their cameras?

Anyway, still managed to take some photographs in the other halls where photography is allowed.
