National Museum of Singapore

At 119 years old, the National Museum of Singapore is Singapore’s biggest and oldest museum with the youngest and most innovative soul. Designed to be the people’s museum, the Museum prides itself on introducing cutting edge and varied ways of presenting history to redefine conventional museum experience.

More than just a space for exhibitions and artefacts, the Museum will also distinguish itself through its challenging and vibrant festivals and events that will unleash new creative possibilities in culture and heritage. This programming will be supported by a wide range of facilities and services including Food & Beverage, retail, Resource Centre, Gallery Theatre and the Public Sculpture Garden, among others.

With a rich history dating back to 1887, the National Museum of Singapore has been closed since April 2003 for redevelopment and will officially open in December 2006. From now till then, a series of Preview Season events have been lined up to entice visitors to take a peek of this prestigious cultural and heritage centre in Singapore.
