Special Exhibitions

Free admission to the National Museums will be granted to as many special exhibitions as possible alongside free admissions to the permanent galleries. However, from time to time, our museums bring in internationally renowned works and exhibitions from overseas. Entry charges may then apply to help cover costs and ensure sustainability. For such exhibitions where there is an admission fee, NHB will continue to offer free admission for citizens and PR who are students, teachers, senior citizens, NSFs, and persons with disabilities, as well as children 6 years of age and under and the first caregiver of persons with disabilities for all nationalities. 

Concessions will be available for non-citizens and non-PRs who are students, seniors aged 60 years and above, and persons with disabilities, with valid identification.
