Singapore

Record number of visitors at our museums last year

The number of visitors at national museums and heritage institutions hit an all-time high of 3,751,475 in 2015, the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) said on Tuesday. This was almost one million more than the 2,970,981 visitors in 2014, spurred in part by the opening of the National Gallery Singapore and the Indian Heritage Centre. There was also a rise in visitorship at most institutions - the number of visitors to the Malay Heritage Centre more than doubled, from 166,506 in 2014 to 445,186 in 2015, while the number of visitors to the Singapore Art Museum also shot up from 743,718 to 903,357.
