Inspired by the themes featured in the museum’s latest exhibition, Now Boarding: Experiencing Singapore through Travel, 1800s–2000s, explore Singapore in a new light with our new pop-up rooms that will be available from 4 August to 19 November 2023.
An immersive trip down memory lane
Explore our travel-themed pop-up rooms (travel lounge, hotel and disco) around the museum's spaces that further bring the travel experience in Singapore in the 1980s to life! Entry to the pop-up rooms are free with general admission to the museum.
Audio Tour: That Weekend in the Lion City
Accompanying the pop-up rooms is an immersive audio tour that will take visitors on a self-guided exploration of the three spaces, through the recollections of a first-time traveller to Singapore in the 1980s. Titled ‘That Weekend in the Lion City’, the audio tour features engaging dialogue and soundscapes, whisking visitors on a whirlwind adventure across the island to experience the vibrant and bustling scenes of yesteryear Singapore.
At the end of the tour, visitors are encouraged to continue their exploration at the Now Boarding exhibition, and complete the protagonist’s story by solving a mystery. Entries with the most creative responses will stand to win a range of exciting prizes, including a 2D1N staycation at Goodwood Park Hotel, set dinners, buffet offerings and hotel gourmet card memberships. The audio tour will be available from 4 August till 19 November.
