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.
We are implementing vaccination-differentiated safe management measures (VDS) for entry into our museum. From 1 January 2022, there will no longer be a concession for unvaccinated individuals to perform PET, to enter museums. Only fully vaccinated, recovered, or medically ineligible individuals, or children aged 12 years and below, will be allowed to enter museums. For more information, please visit https://go.gov.sg/nhbsmm.
Visitors are encouraged to pre-purchase tickets here to reduce waiting time at the museum.
