In the lead up to Singapore’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2015, the National Museum will be undergoing another timely revamp so as to better share the Singapore Story and to celebrate the multiple voices in the nation’s historical narrative and the many facets of the multicultural “everyday heritage”.
The refreshed National Museum aims to be a museum for the people – a civic space where guests will enjoy visiting, allowing for reflection on what Singapore has achieved in the past and inspiring confidence in the future. It therefore aims to connect well with you through greater interactive and participatory experiences as well as enhanced coherence and integration of its narratives and displays.
The revamp will present a more comprehensive overview of Singapore’s history and development as a country in its galleries and spaces, which includes developing the nation’s post-1965 chapters that many Singaporeans can personally relate to. The galleries will be expected to re-open in the second half of 2015.
The existing office space on Level 3 of National Museum will be converted into a new Wing, called PLAY@NMS, which stands for “National Museum Singapore”. It will be a multi-sensory environment dedicated to children, with interactive exhibitions that encourage learning through play. Programmes thoughtfully curated based on the collections in the National Museum’s permanent galleries will be made available, to stimulate the young visitors’ natural curiosity and creativity. PLAY@NMS will be a multi-purpose space for interactive exhibitions, workshops as well as educationalplay.
