Description

SJIOBA Tour @ Singapore Art Museum (SAM)

The Singapore Art Museum at Bras Basah (Former St. Joseph's Institution) will be undergoing renovation and restoration works from end-August onwards. Join us for an exclusive tour of this storied site just before it becomes off-limits to public access for the next three years!

Tour Synopsis

The tour will recount the historical time when the Bras Basah district was part of a broader thriving township in Temasek during the 12th to 14th century, before providing insight on its role in Singapore's modern founding in 1819.

The tour will then reconcile the past with the present, shedding light on the building’s colonial history, and reminiscing the 130 plus years when it was a school, St Joseph's Institution.

A light show organised by the National Heritage Board will also be electrifying the evening’s nostalgia, drenching the building’s facade with dancing colours and vibrancy.

Immerse yourself in diverse and insightful exhibitions that reveal centuries of common memories and stories. Join the exclusive tours to the antiquated chapel and the courtyard. Learn about lesser-known pieces of history that contributed to Singapore’s formative past. Bridge history with physicality as you walk down the halls, and that has been both home and community to many.
