Each of the designs are individually themed to the 43 participating museums. This means there is good reason to a visit to the different museums around Singapore.
One of these museums is the Char Yong (Dabu) Association Heritage Hall, which is participating in the Museum Roundtable Lunar New Year Hongbao Campaign for the first time.
The Char Yong (Dabu) Association, Singapore was founded in 1858 to provide welfare for the Dabu Hakka community and its Heritage Hall showcases the history and heritage of the Dabu Hakka culture

We hear that the Museum Roundtable Lunar New Year Hongbao Campaign is so popular that some of the museums have run out of hongbaos within a couple of days.
This year, at some of the museums, such as the ArtScience Museum, there are conditions such as a limited number of hongbaos being given away per day. Hopefully, that means that more people will be able to get hold of the coveted red packets.
This year’s Dragon designs are by Colombian artist Carlos Puentes.
Limited Edition Collector’s Box Set
The limited edition Collector’s Box Sets are making a return!
Each Collector’s Box Set contains two full sets of Museum Roundtable’s Dragon Year red packet designs from all participating 43 Museum Roundtable members as well as a special edition design for the National Heritage Board that is not available anywhere else.
The hongbaos in the Box Sets will have a unique orange background which is different from the red packets that can be collected directly at the participating museums, heritage institutions and galleries.
The Collector’s Box Sets are available in a limited quantity of 450 albums which will be available for purchase only at Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (12 Tai Gin Road, Singapore 327874) on pre-specified dates in January 2024.

Each person is limited to the purchase of only one box set during the sales period. Payment for and collection of the Collector’s Box Sets will be conducted physically, only at Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall.

If you wish to get hold of the red packets without necessarily visiting all the museums, National Heritage Board will also be organising two online giveaways on the I Love Museums Facebook page.
