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.

IMD SYMPOSIUM 2022 - THE POWER OF MUSEUMS

The theme for the International Council of Museum’s (ICOM) 2022 International Museum Day, The Power of Museums, recognises museums as places of discovery that teach us about our past and compels us to open our minds to new ideas. As spaces for education, intellectual discourse, and research, museums have immense power to shape the thoughts, behaviours, and the actions of people. Museum professionals are thus uniquely placed to catalyse social awareness and action on contemporary issues facing our world today, in the hopes of building a better future for our respective communities.
