About Us

With a history dating back to 1887, the National Museum of Singapore is the nation’s oldest museum with a progressive mind. Beneath its 19th-century colonial exterior, it uses cutting-edge technology to present the nation’s legacy and development. Its galleries adopt multi-perspectives ways of presenting history and culture featuring important artefacts that tell the stories of Singapore and the world to redefine the conventional museum experience.

The museum is home to thought-provoking exhibitions and hosts exciting events all year round including the Singapore Night Festival. In 2022, it celebrated its 135th anniversary.
