While museums and cultural institutions remain closed, at least until Phase 3, most have gone online to showcase their artworks and performances. One of which is The National Museum of Singapore's An Old New World Exhibition, which is now available as a digital edition, so you can marvel at the artworks right from the comfort of your home.

Singapore's oldest museum has taken things a step further and is lighting up amidst these dark times, in solidarity with healthcare workers. The National Museum of Singapore's facade features a projection by company MJD.Pro with the messages "thank you, healthcare heroes" and "#SGUnited". 

"This is especially for you, healthcare heroes! The National Museum is lighting up amidst these dark times, in solidarity and appreciation of the sacrifices made by our healthcare personnel in this battle against the pandemic. Thank you for tirelessly keeping our community safe," the museum said on a Facebook post on June 1.  

The projection on the museum's facade follows a series of other light-ups across Singapore. Every Thursday at 8pm, iconic landmarks in the city glow as part of the #SeeItBlue campaign, an offshoot of the global #MakeItBlue movement that aims to raise awareness of the importance of mental health. Hotels such as Marina Bay Sands and Shangri-La Hotel Singapore have also participated in the city-wide light up.
