Hop aboard the National Museum of Singapore’s ‘flight’ to discover Singapore with Now Boarding: Experiencing Singapore through Travel, 1800s – 2000s, a travel-themed exhibition that traces the evolution of Singapore’s identity as a popular travel destination, through the eyes of those who arrived at our shores from the past to the present.

Set against the backdrop of Singapore’s colonial past and its post-independence decades up to the present, Now Boarding presents itself as a travel guide and visual exploration of Destination Singapore.

Through four thematic sections aligned to the themes of transport, accommodation, food and beverage, sights and shopping; the exhibition showcases a specially curated selection of ubiquitous material and artefacts evoking powerful memories of travel to and from Singapore. This includes the iconic analogue flip board previously located at Changi Airport, to a set of the history-making Singapore Airlines’ A380 prestigious Suites Cabin seat.

As part of Now Boarding, there will also be a series of themed pop-up experiences that will happen throughout the year, including NMS’ very own disco room, and other complementary programming for everyone. Check in to this exhibition to discover our little red dot anew, and contemplate on our identities as Singaporeans in an increasingly globalised world.

Date: 27 May 2023 – 25 Feb 2024

Time: 10 – 7pm
