The life and political career of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew will be featured in a new exhibition that is being held at the National Museum of Singapore since Tuesday (24th March) until 26th April.
The exhibition will show the circumstances that shaped the ideals and convictions of Mr Lee and his generation of leaders through photographs and audiovisual recordings, as well as artefacts from the National Collection. The timeline of the exhibition runs from Lee Kuan Yew’s formative student years to his final years of service as Minister Mentor.
According to the National Museum of Singapore and the National Heritage Board joint statement, “Mr Lee’s political biography is inextricably linked to Singapore’s own journey from British colony to merger with Malaysia to Separation and independence. This exhibition chronicles that journey and pays tribute to his contributions. This exhibition will enable visitors to remember and reflect on the solid foundation that he built for Singapore.”
The exhibition will be held at the museum’s Level 2 Glass Atrium. It will be open daily from 10AM to 8PM. Admission is free.
