IN THE GALLERIES

Do not eat and drink in the galleries.

Food and drink may attract ants and other insects. This will cause irreparable harm to the artefacts. Likewise, moisture causes certain materials to deteriorate.

KEEP THE GALLERIES LITTER FREE

Litter of any sort poses a danger to yourself and other visitors. 

TALK SOFTLY AND WALK QUIETLY IN ALL GALLERIES

Rowdy play may result in damage to the artefacts. More importantly, it may cause injury to oneself and other visitors. Loud conversations disturb the peace and quiet, and experience of other visitors.

LOOK AND CAREFULLY EXAMINE THE OBJECTS

Most objects are rare artefacts that need to be in showcases. If they are constantly touched, damage may be caused. These objects are irreplaceable.

HANDLE THE DEVICE WITH CARE

The handheld device is issued to each visitor upon entry to the Indian Heritage Centre. Please treat with it care so that it will not be damaged.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO

Video filming and flash photography is not allowed. 

Flash from cameras damage sensitive materials like paper and textile, shortening their lifespan. This is also why certain areas in the galleries are dimly lit. Please check with our museum personnel if you have any questions.
