The National Museum of Singapore is the nation's oldest museum that seeks to inspire with stories of Singapore and the world. Its history dates back to 1849, when it opened on Stamford Road as the Raffles Library and Museum.



The well-being of our visitors and staff remains our primary concern. For your safety, safe management measures will be implemented during your visit. These include:

- The use of SafeEntry upon entry and exit 

- Safe-distancing of at least one metre at all times

- Wearing of mask at all times

- No more than 5 visitors per group. There should be no mingling across groups.

Vaccination-differentiated safe management measures (VDS) have been implemented for entry to museums.

- Individuals can be allowed entry in group sizes of up to 5 persons if all are vaccinated.
- Children aged 12 years and below and recovered individuals can be included in the group of 5. If there is more than one child aged 12 years and below in the group of 5 persons, both children must be from the same household.
- Entry will also be allowed for individuals who are medically ineligible for vaccines under the National Vaccination Programme, as well as individuals who have recovered from COVID-19. From 1 Feb 2022, entry will be only be granted to recovered individuals who are within 180 days of their first positive PCR test result, if they are not fully vaccinated.
