Give to the Museum

The museum greatly relies on the support from our dedicated donors and generous friends like you to present fresh and thought-provoking perspectives of Singapore’s history and continue to keep our stories and traditions alive. Your support makes a difference every day.

Patronage has a long history in the world of arts, culture and heritage and your support helps the National Museum of Singapore (NMS) preserve, promote and inspire with stories of Singapore and the world. More specifically, your donations enable NMS to create a space that welcomes a diverse audience and curate innovative, relevant and accessible exhibitions and programmes in a manner that ignites conversations and deepens the understanding of Singapore and the world. Help us preserve our stories so that we may present a more complete and richer picture of our shared history for our future generations. There are several ways you can give.

Our latest initiative is a digital donation kiosk which enables visitors to play a simple game involving characters inspired by the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings. The kiosk is located near the exit of the Story of the Forest installation in the Glass Rotunda. Make a donation and help baby tapir get home when you next visit the museum.
