25 Halal Stalls at Halalfoodhunt.com’s first pop-up cafe for National Museum’s 130th Anniversary
Halalfoodhunt.com will be joining in the National Museum of Singapore's celebrations this 13 to 15 October, Friday to Sunday with its first ever curated pop-up cafe at +65 Concept Market, a curated Artisinal Retro Market by Satire Singapore, Halalfoodhunt.com and The Retro Factory for National Museum of Singapore's 130th Anniversary!
How old is the National Museum again?
Yes, it is 130 years old.
On Wednesday 12 October 1887 at 5pm, the 14th Governor of the Straits Settlements, Sir Frederick Weld, ceremoniously opened the Raffles Library and Museum at Stamford Road. The oldest of its kind in Singapore, the museum was then established to spur intellectual inquiry in the region. It grew alongside the country, survived the Japanese Occupation and has transformed into a socio-history and cultural institution that is well-loved by many. Today, the National Museum of Singapore continues to excite and inspire visitors with its innovative ways of presenting history and the national collection.
What to Expect
Specially curated flea market- retro and vintage items at Basement 1 and Concourse, Level 1.

Butterboo:eh is a homemade brew made of all that is magical in the world, designed to tickle your tastebuds and quench your thirst. This delicious brew is made of two parts – soothing liquid gold and dreamy butterscotch foam.

Take a sip and reminisce good times with loved ones.
