Limited Edition Excavation Kit

Available at SAM Curve vending machine
Price: $45 for full kit
           $20 for Book of Mythologies only

In collaboration with Drama Box and as part of Singapore Heritage Festival and the series of archaeological activities at SAM, we have produced limited sets of this Excavation Kit. Each kit contains three sets of documents that offer an enlightening peek into the stories, heritage and characters that have emerged from and around the building that is SAM today.

Designed as an excavated parcel of documentary “artefacts”, the hitherto untold narratives behind the National Monument that is over 160 years old unfold in a Mission File, a set of Discovered Letters and a Book of Mythologies.

As much as collectible as an educational guide, this limited-print package serves to celebrate the various facets of SAM as well as to challenge the way in which you, the recipient of these discoveries, explore and question the records of memories.

Remember, memories are only what you choose to excavate.
