National Treasure

Have you been watching Treasure Hunt on Channel News Asia? Now catch the exhibition The People’s Collection at the National Museum! They might not be priceless artefacts but these items mean more to us as Singaporeans – part of a real-life account of what life used to be in the past. We were featured in the episode focusing on the 60s’; see our vintage cash register, brass toast grille and kopitiam cup.

The exhibition runs from now till 29 April at the National Museum, Stamford Road. Here are some highlights from the launch event.
