1 Jul - 10 Aug: Balik Pulau at the National Museum of Singapore

The Balik Pulau Exhibition features amazing stories from Singapore’s islands. Singapore is not just one "sunny island, set in the sea", but used to be an archipelago of more than 70 islands.
There is lots for the kids to explore and learn.

For centuries, these islands have been important landmarks for sailors, and also home to different communities who lived off their waters. After Singapore gained independence, the islands were transformed dramatically and nearly all their inhabitants resettled on the mainland.Balik Pulau, is a return to the islands, in memory and spirit, to recover the stories of those who lived, worked and played there. We chart the changes that have taken place and how a new generation is rediscovering our islands and forging new links to them.
A wonderful slide show of our islands past and present
reveals interesting and thought-provoking facts.
