The National Museum of Singapore closes its Food Gallery, Photography Gallery and Goh Seng Choo Gallery on Monday, 29 September. This is part of the Museum’s next phase of its major revamp. The first phase saw the launch of PLAY @ National Museum of Singapore – a multi-sensory museum wing dedicated to children ages 3 to 7.
The revamp hopes to present a more comprehensive overview of the ‘Singapore Story’, and celebrate the multiple voices in the nation’s historical narrative and the many facets of our multicultural “everyday heritage” in its galleries and spaces as the nation approaches its 50th year of independence.
During the closure of the galleries, visitors can continue to enjoy several exhibitions and programmes such as
– 11th Singapore Short Cuts (13 & 14 Sep and 20 & 21 Sep)
– A Century of Motor Racing in Singapore (12 to 21 Sep)
– 4th Singapore International Photography Festival 2014: Open Call Showcase (3 Oct to 30 Nov)
– Perspectives Film Festival (16 – 19 Oct)
– Singapura: 700 years (28 Oct 2014 to 30 Aug 2015)
Food and Beverage outlets as well as the Museum Label shop will continue to function as usual. The Singapore History Gallery will be the final gallery to be closed on 3 November.
