1923 – 2015 Remembering Mr Lee Kuan Yew

This exhibition has been extended to 24 May 2015. Opening hours every Friday and Saturday will also be extended to 10pm from 10 April.

This memorial exhibition chronicles the life and political career of Singapore’s first Prime Minister and founding father Lee Kuan Yew. It also highlights the ideals and convictions that shaped Mr Lee and his generation of leaders.

Through a selection of photographic images and audiovisual recordings, as well as artefacts from the National Collection, the exhibition begins with Mr Lee’s formative years as a law student at Cambridge and his early involvement in the anti-colonial struggle.

It also traces his political career from the formation of the People’s Action Party, through his Prime Ministership, to his final years of service as Senior Minister and Minister Mentor. 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.
