Museum Roundtable

The Museum Roundtable is a collective established by the National Heritage Board in 1996 to promote a museum-going culture amongst Singaporeans and to position museums as unique cultural destinations.

Our members comprise over 50 public and private museums and heritage galleries covering the subjects of national history, culture and community, art, defence, lifestyle and collectibles, healthcare, science and innovation.

Together, we collaborate on exhibitions, festivals and programmes, share best practices and focus on raising the capabilities of our members.

MR 25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS

The Museum Roundtable is celebrating its 25th Anniversary! Get ready for a series of special anniversary programmes this September. From 4 to 6 September 2021, NHB, in collaboration with 10 mystery Museum Roundtable members (Psst… the museums will only be revealed during the tour!), will be offering three thematic tours, titled, “Fashion Confessions”, “Mythical Creatures” and “Hidden Secrets” which offer different insights into the collections and workings of the participating museums.

IMD SYMPOSIUM 2021

The theme for International Museum Day 2021 invites museum professionals to imagine and share new practices in the (co-)creation of value, new business models for cultural institutions and innovative solutions for the social, economic, and environmental challenges of the present. This symposium will explore some of the recovery efforts that museums adopted in 2020 and early 2021 to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also explore learning points that museums can take into the future as they engage with their audiences.
