Secrets of Singapore: National Museum
Written by Lesley-Anne and Monica Lim
Illustrated by Elvin Ching
In Secrets of Singapore: National Museum, Danger Dan and Gadget Girl take a peek behind the pillars of the National Museum to see what secrets it guards. And what a treasure trove! From way back to the time of Sang Nila Utama right up to modern day Singapore, the superhero duo unearth curious artefacts such as a headless horseman figurine from the 1300s, and banana money (not made from actual bananas) from the Japanese Occupation.
In exploring the museum, Danger Dan and Gadget Girl discover that the museum itself hides a curious past. It was once located in a school (Raffles Institution, no less!), and some of the more unusual gifts it received included an elephant and a tiger. Luckily, they were dead. Otherwise, there would have been chaos at the museum.
Join Danger Dan and Gadget Girl on an adventure through the National Museum and watch history come to life right before your eyes!
