Museum Etiquette

We appreciate your help in making a visit to the museum an enjoyable experience. 

  1. All children must be accompanied by adults at all times. 
  2. Keeping our voices low will allow everyone to enjoy the galleries. 
  3. Please refrain from touching any artefacts on open display. Touching artefacts, paintings or works are prohibited as oil from fingers will contaminate and eventually destroy the artefacts.
  4. Your safety is important to us. Please do not lean on showcases as they can break under pressure. Please do not run in the museum as this may cause our artefacts to be knocked over. 
  5. You can take photographs WITHOUT FLASH. Camera flashes will damage photo-sensitive artefacts. 
  6. If you have prepared worksheets, please ensure that only pencils are used in the galleries. Pen marks on walls or panel are difficult to erase. 
  7. Please eat or drink outside the museum. Our galleries need to be kept clean from food, spillage and pests.
Photography and Filming

Photography without flash and videography are permitted with handheld cameras in the main galleries. Special photography / filming sessions require special permission. Please contact +65 6332 7798 for more information.
