Museum Victoria will develop exhibition and partnership exchanges with Singapore’s leading national cultural organisation under an agreement signed today.

The Memorandum of Understanding between Museum Victoria and Singapore’s National Heritage Board is aimed at strengthening existing cultural and heritage collaboration between the two institutions.

Museum Victoria’s CEO Dr Patrick Greene signed the MoU at a ceremony in Singapore.

‘’This exciting deal not only paves the way for more exhibition and loan exchanges between Museum Victoria and Singapore’s National Heritage Board but also encourages stronger links through staff exchanges and partnership projects,’’ Dr Greene said.

‘’As Australia’s largest public museum organisation, Museum Victoria will explore further collaboration across curatorial services, family and children’s programming, conservation, collection management, research and publication,’’ he said.

The agreement follows the recent signing of an MoU on Co-operation in the Field of Arts and Culture between Singapore and Australia, as part of The Singapore-Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.

Museum Victoria operates Melbourne Museum, Scienceworks, and the Immigration Museum and is custodian of the World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building.

An estimated 2.3 million people visit Museum Victoria’s venues each year.

Singapore’s National Heritage Board operates key cultural sites including the National Museum of Singapore, the Indian Heritage Centre, the Asian Civilisations Museum, the Malay Heritage Centre and the Peranakan Museum.
