About Us

With a history dating back to 1887, the National Museum of Singapore is the nation's oldest museum. Beneath its 19th-century colonial exterior lies a progressive mind, offering fresh, multi-angled perspectives of Singapore's history and culture. Our galleries showcase the story of Singapore's development over more than 700 years, featuring important artefacts, cutting-edge technology and creative storytelling that redefine the conventional museum experience.

As a cultural and architectural landmark, the museum was designated a National Monument of Singapore on 14 February 1992. The museum continues to host thought-provoking exhibitions and exciting events all year round, including the Singapore Night Festival, with dedicated programmes for children and the elderly.

Join us for an immersive experience at the museum and discover the Singapore story anew.
