SINGAPORE - The National Museum of Singapore will be closing its Food Gallery, Photography Gallery and Goh Seng Choo Gallery on Sep 29.

The closures are part of the museum's next phase of its major revamp, in which it is set to undergo a $10 million facelift as part of Singapore's 50th anniversary celebrations next year. It is likely to re-open in the second half of 2015.

The revamp hopes to give visitors a more comprehensive overview of Singapore's history, and to celebrate the multicultural heritage as the nation approaches SG50.

During the closure of the galleries, visitors can continue to visit other exhibitions, such as 11th Singapore Short Cuts, A Century of Motor Racing in Singapore, 4th Singapore International Photography Festival 2014: Open Call Showcase, Perspectives Film Festival and Singapura: 700 years.

Food and beverage outlets as well as the Museum Label shop will continue to function as usual.

The Singapore History Gallery will be the final gallery to be closed on Nov 3.
