Happy National Day, Singapore 🇸🇬! Join us as we celebrate our nation’s 58th birthday with the illumination of six historical and culturally significant landmarks around the Bras Basah.Bugis precinct, and watch them light up in the National Flag colours of red and white.

For this year’s edition, Children’s Museum Singapore, Fort Canning Centre, Maghain Aboth Synagogue, National Museum of Singapore, St Joseph’s Church and The Peranakan Museum will join the tribute for the light-up. These landmarks – four of which are National Monuments – take us on a journey through our shared heritage that reminds us of our national identity, bonding the generations of the past, present and future. The swashes of red and white lights are an expression of our creative responses to our current times, an articulation of our dreams and aspirations, and at the same time, remind us that our future paths are our own to blaze!

Details of the light up are as follows:

📅 1 – 26 Aug 2023
*National Museum of Singapore light-up: Until 9 August 2023
⏰ 7.30pm – 12am daily
📍 Various arts and cultural landmarks in the Bras Basah.Bugis precinct

In the weeks leading up to National Day, the National Museum building will come alive with a special facade light-up. This year’s light-up will feature a snippet of the National Museum’s commissioned short film, inviting visitors to reflect on the life and values of Mr Lee, the colours and symbols of Singapore and the National Day theme of Onward As One.
