SGH Museum

Housed in the Bowyer Block, an architectural landmark in the Outram Campus, the SGH Museum is a repository of artefacts and records, where visitors can trace the long and rich history of the Singapore General Hospital. It is also a place where one can learn about the development of medical specialties and medical education in Singapore, presented in the latest state-of-the-art audiovisual and multimedia technology.

The SGH Museum was officially opened by President S R Nathan on 20 May 2005.

The Museum adopts a thematic approach in presenting the Hospital’s history of more than 180 years, where visitors get not just an insight into the significant development of the hospital through the years, but also an understanding of the impact these incidents have on the people and the community.

Visitors are encouraged to freely explore the various interactive exhibits and learn about the changing role of the healthcare services in Singapore, as well as a greater understanding of the history, medical breakthroughs and luminaries of SGH.
