Singapore History Gallery


As of 18 May 2013, all national museums and heritage institutions will be offering free entry to Singaporeans and permanent residents (see ST news and CNA news). Although it's free admission to the exhibitions at the National Museum of Singapore, we still have to show our IC and exchange for a ticket at the ticketing counter.

The museum is housed in a preserved heritage building.



There happened to be the Trading Stories: Conversations with Six Pioneering Tradesmen exhibition going on. It's a small exhibition about the different trades during Singapore's early years. There's a station illustrating the steps for folding the Samsui Woman's red headscarf.

To enter the Singapore History Gallery, we took the escalators to level 2. At the entrance, a museum staff hands out a tablet with earphones for visual and audio elaborations about the exhibits.
