In Memoriam: Lee Kuan Yew
Singapore, 24 March 2015 – This memorial exhibition at the National Museum of Singapore 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.
The memorial exhibition will be held at the Glass Atrium, Level 2, National Museum of Singapore from Wednesday, 25 March to Sunday 26 April 2015. The exhibition is open daily from 10am to 8pm. Admission to this exhibition is free for all visitors.
