Packaging Matters: Singapore’s Food Packaging Story from the Early 20th Century
Now till 15 Sep 2019
Fast forward from the 17th century to the 19th century.
This exhibition showcases packaging from the early bottling and canning factories in the late 19th to early 20th centuries, to the light industries of the 1960s-70s when food was manufactured in factories. Drawing from the museum’s rich artefact collections, Packaging Matters traces the development of packaging technologies in the context of new retail spaces such as supermarkets, as well as the design identities of local food brands.
From now till 15 Sep 2019, visit the exhibition and bring your own bottle for a free Gong Cha Milk Tea. Limited to the first 200 redemptions or while stock lasts. Valid only for visit between 12pm to 3.00pm.
