This is quite a nice exhibition to check out the history of Singapore before independence. Contrary to popular belief, Singapore was already far from a “fishing village” in 1819. Admission for Singapore citizens and PRs are free.
CapitaStar members can get a free tea infuser with an image of a tapir (how cool is that), with just 100 points.
From September 21, check out the An Old New World exhibition at the National Museum of Singapore.
Explore the 200 years leading up to the establishment of an entrepôt in Singapore in 1819, beginning with the bustling world of trade in the East Indies that attracted the Dutch and British East India Companies from the early 17th century. The exhibition is a telling of that story, and a reflection of the broader forces at play that culminated in the events of 1819.
Here’s an exclusive gift to CapitaStar members – get a tea infuser with an image of a Malayan tapir inspired by William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings when you visit the exhibition at 100 STAR$ through CapitaStar App and redeem at National Museum exhibition counter at Basement 1!
