4. Now Boarding: Experiencing Singapore through Travel, 1800s – 2000s


Hop aboard the National Museum of Singapore’s ‘flight’ to discover Singapore with Now Boarding: Experiencing Singapore through Travel, 1800s – 2000s, a travel-themed exhibition that traces the evolution of Singapore’s identity as a popular travel destination, through the eyes of those who arrived at our shores from the past to the present.


Set against the backdrop of Singapore’s colonial past and its post-independence decades up to the present, Now Boarding presents itself as a travel guide and visual exploration of Destination Singapore.

Through four thematic sections aligned to the themes of transport, accommodation, food and beverage, sights and shopping; the exhibition showcases a specially curated selection of ubiquitous material and artefacts evoking powerful memories of travel to and from Singapore. This includes the iconic analogue flip board previously located at Changi Airport, to a set of the history-making Singapore Airlines’ A380 prestigious Suites Cabin seat.


As part of Now Boarding, there will also be a series of themed pop-up experiences that will happen throughout the year, including NMS’ very own disco room, and other complementary programming for everyone. Check in to this exhibition to discover our little red dot anew, and contemplate on our identities as Singaporeans in an increasingly globalised world.

5. Spinning Connections


From food to performing arts, Southeast Asia’s intangible cultural heritage (ICH) is an important link to our past and intrinsic to our rich cultural identity. To pay homage to the time-honoured traditions and living expressions that define and connect us across the region, the National Museum of Singapore and the Maybank Foundation will be presenting a series of four original video artworks on the Museum’s LED Wall that showcase creative contemporary responses to the theme of intangible cultural heritage (ICH).


Titled Spinning Connections: Creative Takes on Intangible Cultural Heritage, the commissioned artworks were selected from entries submitted through an Open Call exercise held between April to May last year, to foster collaboration with the artistic community to engage audiences on important contemporary issues. Each artwork highlights an aspect of ICH, namely food, dance, martial arts and storytelling, while drawing connections to the National Museum’s collection. The artworks bring contemporary resonance to the past and invite visitors to understand the present in different ways.


Location: National Museum Singapore, LED Wall

Date: 02 May 2023 - 06 Aug 2023

Time: 10am to 7pm daily (last admission at 6.30pm)
