As part of efforts to create a more sustainable and liveable Singapore, URA is partnering with LTA, NParks, NAC, SportSG and HPB to organise “Car-Free Sunday SG” morning out in the heart of the city for families and friends.
Car-Free Sunday SG will be held on the last Sunday of each month for six months, commencing 28 February 2016. A number of key roads within the Central Business District and the Civic District will be partially or fully closed to create a large scale ‘car-free’ area and a 4.7km long route for the public to cycle, walk and jog.

Between 7am to 9am, the roads around the Padang – St Andrew’s Road, Stamford Road and Connaught Drive – and Fullerton Road and parts of Shenton Way and Robinson Road will be closed to traffic.  St Andrew’s Road and part of Stamford Road will remain closed until 12pm while Connaught Drive will remain closed until 7pm.

The road closures will be complemented by sports and family-based activities at Empress Place and Esplanade Park, including mass Zumba and aerobics sessions, kid’s sports activities, etc.  There will also be breakfast vendors and food trucks for families and friends to enjoy Sunday brunch together.

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 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.
