The National Museum of Singapore is the nation's oldest museum that seeks to inspire with stories of Singapore and the world. Its history dates back to 1849, when it opened on Stamford Road as the Raffles Library and Museum.


Singapore is implementing an elevated set of safe distancing measures, as a circuit breaker, to minimise further spread of COVID-19.

The National Museum of Singapore is committed to do our part to fight the pandemic situation which has affected everyone globally. Singapore will exit the circuit breaker when it ends on 1 June, but will be resuming activities gradually in phases. As such, the National Museum of Singapore remains closed until further notice.

During our closure, stay in touch with us via our social media channels, where we continue to bring you digital offerings to keep you engaged and entertained while you are staying at home.

Stay home, stay safe and stay healthy — we will get through this together. With our collective efforts, we will see each other again soon.
