STB takes over Chinatown Heritage Centre management
The museum will remain closed until further notice.
The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) is set to take over the management of the Chinatown Heritage Centre museum from its current operator, according to an announcement.
Both parties have agreed to end the operator’s tenancy contract to manage the museum, which has been impacted by COVID-19 and prolonged restrictions on international travel.
The museum, which has ceased operations since September 2020, will remain closed until further notice.
“Chinatown Heritage Centre has grown to become one of Singapore’s top ranked museums. We will use this time to review the centre’s operating model, and will announce future plans in due course,” said Lim Shoo Ling, STB director, arts & cultural precincts.
