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

SAM's advisory on COVID-19 (as of 15 May 2021)

With an enhanced set of Safe Management Measures announced on 14 May 2021, museums in Singapore will remain open but will reduce visitorship capacity to 25%. In this period, SAM's exhibition Wikicliki at National Gallery Singapore will remain open, as with our outdoor Hoarding Commissions along Bras Basah Road and Queen Street. We hope you will continue to find comfort and joy in connecting with our onsite art experiences. 


We will continue to monitor the situation closely and take an informed approach to update our operations in line with the evolving advice from the relevant authorities. For the latest updates on the COVID- 19 situation in Singapore, please refer to the Ministry of Health’s website (
