What measures is SAM taking in response to the COVID-19 situation?

SAM's advisory on COVID-19 (as of 26 June 2020)


Since 26 June 2020, museums and galleries in Singapore have begun to reopen in phases. However, as the situation is still dynamic, SAM remains committed to protecting the health and safety of all visitors and staff. We will continue to implement enhanced measures to ensure that our physical exhibitions and programmes are safe for everyone. Our team will also continue working remotely to bring you exciting new content for your enjoyment from home.


See you soon at our next exhibition. Meanwhile, please enjoy our #MuseumFromHome content.
