You may have missed your museum visits during the 'circuit breaker' and Phase 1 of Singapore's safe reopening. But here's great news. As Singapore enters Phase 2, museums and cultural institutions will be reopening their doors once more.
On June 19, the National Heritage Board (NHB) announced that the museums will be allowed to reopen to the public from June 26, subject to safe management measures to ensure the safety of employees and visitors. This includes reducing operating capacity to 25 percent of the entire venue. Group size should also be limited to no more than five persons per group, and groups should maintain a safe distance of at least 1 metre between groups. It also goes without saying that you should be wearing your masks at all times.
The National Museum of Singapore, Asian Civilisations Museum and National Gallery Singapore will be reopening their doors on June 26. On the other hand, NHB's cultural institutions – Indian Heritage Centre, Malay Heritage Centre, Sun Yat-Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall – will be reopening on July 3.
