Want to stand out from the crowd this Lunar New Year? This Year of the Tiger, spread the huat with some artsy hongbaos. The National Heritage Board (NHB) is back with its popular Museum Roundtable Lunar New Year Hongbao Campaign, showcasing limited edition red packet designed based on the Tiger, the Chinese zodiac animal for 2022. 

From January 7 to February 4, you'll be able to collect a set of unique red packet designs at each of the 35 participating museums, heritage institutions and galleries – all while stocks last. Each set will contain eight pieces of red packets – but you can only collect one packet per visitor. Two of the 35 participating museums are new Museum Roundtable (MR) members which are participating in the Hongbao Campaign for the first time: Geylang Serai Heritage Gallery and Kreta Ayer Heritage Gallery.

Amp up your hongbao collection game with the limited edition collector's albums available for sale at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall from January 22. Each album costs $70 and will contain two full sets of exclusive 35 Museum Roundtable red packet designs, displayed inside a customised album. 

If you're thinking of getting cultured this Lunar New Year, usher in the Year of the Tiger at The Asian Civilisations Museum through online videos and onsite programmes, including guided tours, craft activities, and more; or watch a lion dance performance at the National Museum of Singapore on February 4.
