About the programme

Law of the Land: Highlights of Singapore’s Constitutional Documents explores the history and development of Singapore’s constitution from Singapore’s founding as a British settlement in 1819 to its emergence as a sovereign republic in 1965. The exhibition features rare constitutional documents from the collections of the National Archives of Singapore and the National Library, Singapore. The documents capture key moments in Singapore’s constitutional history and also throw light on milestones in our island-nation’s history.

Organised by the National Archives of Singapore and the National Library Board, the exhibition is held at the historic former Chief Justice’s Chamber and Office at the National Gallery Singapore. Join our curator-led Insights Tour to discover more about Singapore's constitutional documents.
