Go Museum-hopping in Singapore and Collect Limited Edition Red Packets to Celebrate the Year of The Dragon 2024

It’s already the start of a new year, and what comes quickly around the corner? Lunar New Year!

The Museum Roundtable Lunar New Year Hongbao Campaign returns for its 10th iteration this year — this time featuring a cute and versatile Dragon uniquely designed for each of the 43 participating museums, heritage institutions and galleries.

The Char Yong (Dabu) Association Heritage Hall, a new member of the Museum Roundtable (MR) since 2023, will be participating in the campaign for the first time. Four other MR members will also be returning this year — the Republic of Singapore Air Force Museum, the Singapore Navy Museum, the Singapore Maritime Gallery, and the Singapore Sports Museum.

Limited edition red packets designed by Columbian artist Carlos Puentes

From 12 January to 9 February 2024, you can visit participating museums, heritage institutions, and galleries to collect a set of eight red packets designed specifically for each museum. Each visitor is entitled to only one complimentary set of red packets per museum or gallery, while stocks last.

Additionally, collectors can purchase a limited-edition Collector’s Box Set that includes all 43 unique red packet designs.

Mr Goh Chour Thong, Director (International and Museum Relations), NHB, said: “NHB has truly enjoyed 10 years of partnering with Museum Roundtable members for the Hongbao Campaign, and working with them to adapt the design of the Chinese zodiac animal for the year to reflect each of their unique characteristics. We are very encouraged that the hongbaos as well as the limited collectors’ editions have continued to be popular with the public and sought after by collectors, and helped grow visitorship and appreciation of the offerings at each of the participating Museum Roundtable members. We certainly hope this year’s hongbaos featuring the cute and versatile dragons designed by Colombian artist Carlos Puentes will be no different!”

There will be a chance to win the Collector’s Box Set or a full set of red packets of all 43 Dragon designs through online giveaways hosted on the ‘I Love Museums’ Facebook.
