Four other¬†MR members will also be returning this year ‚ÄĒ the Republic of Singapore Air Force Museum,¬†the Singapore Navy Museum, the Singapore Maritime Gallery, and the Singapore Sports¬†Museum.

Red Packet Collection 

From 12 January to 9 February 2024, visitors can collect a set of exclusive red packets at any of the 43 participating museums, heritage institutions, and galleries. Each visitor is entitled to one set of eight red packets from any of the venues, while stocks last.

While you do not need to pay any admission to collect the red packets, each museum may have its own requirements for collection, eg, following their social media pages, going on a guided tour, etc.
