via Straits Times, 31 January 2019: 5.4 million visitors to national museums and heritage institutions in Singapore in 2018!

Museums and heritage institutions in Singapore are gaining popularity, with visitor numbers hitting a record high in 2017, according to data from the 2018 Singapore Cultural Statistics released yesterday.

Visitor numbers to national museums and heritage institutions reached 5.4 million in 2017, up from 5.1 million the year before.

This was in tandem with the record-high attendance of 11.3 million at free arts and cultural events, a figure released earlier, on Jan 22, by the Ministry for Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY).

  1. A big thanks should go to all the volunteer docents who make visitors’ experiences in our museums and cultural centres so enriched. There are hundreds of volunteers who guide in a wide variety of languages (Chinese dialects, Korean, Japanese, French, German, English…) who give tours 7 days a week throughout the year with only a few days break. Many visitors are return visitors; many are school children who come with their classes and return with their parents and siblings underscoring the idea that visiting a museum is not a one-off. Thanks are also due all those working in museums who understand how much special exhibitions and hosting exhibitions from abroad contribute to enriching our lives.
