Golden Jubilee: Singapore Turns 50

It’s a big year for Singapore: the little island nation is turning 50 and will be celebrating all year long. The summer schedule is packed with events put on by the city’s top cultural centers, like the National Library, ArtScience Museum and Museum of Independent Music. Not to mention the entire Jubilee Weekend from August 7-10 that’s devoted to the golden birthday: if you’re around the Marina Bay area, check out the floral “Singapore Story” at Gardens by the Bay, the Marina Barrage outdoor picnic, a parade, and free performances at the Theatres on the Bay. Come October, Singapore’s National Museum will unveil a long-awaited revamp with more immersive and modern exhibits that chronicle the city state’s road to independence. Who says there’s nothing to see in Singapore?
