Exhibition on Lee Kuan Yew at National Museum of Singapore

SINGAPORE - A memorial exhibition chronicling the life and political career of Singapore's first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew is being held at the National Museum of Singapore.

The exhibition will be held from March 25 to April 26, from 10am to 8pm daily.

Exhibits on display highlight 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.

The exhibition chronicles that journey and pays tribute to his contributions, allowing visitors to remember and reflect on the solid foundation that he built for Singapore.

Admission is free for all visitors.
