It’s the Year of the Tiger and red packet collectors will be happy to know that the Museum Roundtable Lunar New Year Hongbao Collection is back with plenty of cute themed hongbaos.
These limited edition Museum Roundtable Lunar New Year ang baos feature a tiger character, dressed up in various costumes, out and about at the various museums around Singapore.
Ang Bao collectors can spot various icons referencing the individual museums. Some of the red packets, such as the ones from The National Library and Geylang Serai Heritage Gallery, feature more than one tiger in the design.
This is the 8th time that the Museum Roundtable is having a giveaway of their popular red packets.

This will differentiate them from the ang paos which can be picked up from the museums which have a pink background.
The collector’s albums will be available from 22 January 2022 at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall. Each album is priced at $70.
These museum hongbaos can be collected from the various museums and galleries between 7 January to 4 February 2022. Get more details here.
