The National Museum of Singapore will be closing its Singapore History Gallery, Singapore Living Galleries and Goh Seng Choo Gallery over the coming months for the next phase of its major revamp.
With the revamp, the National Museum of Singapore aims to present a more comprehensive overview of the ‘Singapore Story’, and celebrate the multiple voices in the nation’s historical narrative and the many facets of Singapore’s multicultural “everyday heritage” in its galleries and spaces as the nation approaches its 50th year of independence.
The Fashion Gallery will close on 11 August, the Film & Wanyang Gallery on 18 August, and the Food, Photography and Goh Seng Choo Galleries on 29 September. The Singapore History Gallery closes on 3 November 2014.
During the closure, other exhibitions and programmes such as We: Defining Stories (both, till 31 August) and the upcoming Singapura: 700 Years (28 Oct 2014 to mid 2015) will continue to remain open.
Food and beverage outlets as well as the Museum Label shop will continue to operate as usual.
PLAY @ National Museum of Singapore, a multi-sensory museum wing dedicated to children ages 3 to 7, will also continue to remain open.
