The International Museum Day is a celebration that is held each year on or about 18 May since 1977 . Singapore’s Museums are typically free on this day. The Special thing with this year is that Museum entrance for Citizens and PRs will be Free from 18 May 2013 onwards.
For non citizens, 18 May is still an open house day. Yes. Free entrance for every body. So this is a perfect time to get kids in touch with history, art, culture and natural history.
18 May also marks the begging of Children’s Season 2013 which will take place from 18 May to 21 July 2013. We enjoyed the Children’s Seasons activities in the pass years and are looking forward to what the museums have install for this year.
The museums that are having open house include most of the museums under NHB: Asian Civilisations Museum, Memories at Old Ford Factory, National Museum of Singapore, Peranakan Museum, Reflections at Bukit Chandu, Singapore Art Museum and Singapore Philatelic Museum
