We are deeply committed to our vision of connecting cultures, anhave continued to be so throughout this past year, albeit it through digital means. Like many museums, our charity has been badly impacted financially by the current crisis and protracted closures. If you are able to offer support please consider becoming a member or making a donation.

Occasionally we have to close the Museum in a very short notice due to staff shortage caused by COVID-19. In the case of pre-book tickets, we will get in touch with each individual to rearrange tickets or refund accordingly.
