An Old New World

An Old New World: Digital Edition

Ongoing
Free Admission
The exhibition offers two modes of navigation – guided and self-exploratory. In the former, you will be taken on a specially curated exploration of featured artefacts and the surrounding showcases while listening to narrations by Curators Daniel Tham and Iskander Mydin, along the themes of Knowledge and Power and Seeing the Indigenous. An additional transcript function provides the tour script via a button on the bottom right-hand side, enabling persons with hearing disabilities to access to the tours. Alternatively, you may also navigate the galleries at your own pace via the self-exploratory mode.

The educator’s commentary for lower secondary students will also be added at a later stage. Featuring artefact highlights, the commentary complements the museum’s educational resource An Old New World: Investigating Singapore’s History from Pre-Colonial to the Present released earlier in conjunction with the physical exhibition, for students to delve deeper into pre-colonial Singapore as they conduct their historical investigation of that period.
