Quiet Mornings

The museum has designated the following mornings as Quiet Mornings:

  • 1st Saturday of every month (9am to 11am)
  • 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month (9am to 12pm)

These visiting hours are perfect for guests who prefer a quieter and more relaxing environment to explore the museum in. All galleries open earlier at 9am and bookings from seniors and special needs groups are prioritised during this time.

Walk-in visitors are welcome to visit as well. 

If your elderly prefer a quiet morning activity, a March holiday outing to the National Museum during these hours will be ideal.
