Their stories will be preserved at the permanent My Queenstown Museum, located at Block 30A Margaret Drive, so as to forge a sense of familiarity in the new environment. Our volunteers, who have previously forged their communal networks, will reconnect these elderly residents with their old friends and help build new social ties through programmes in the new museum. Both approaches attempt to recreate the strong sense of community in Tanglin Halt and ensure residents lead meaningful and fulfilling lives in their twilight years.
My Queenstown Museum is the Singapore's first community museum where residents take the front seat in the planning and co-curating of programmes and exhibitions, managing the day-to-day operations and funding its space.
We believe that My Queenstown Museum represents the start of a more inclusive approach to arts and heritage.
