Those born before millennials will remember life with public payphones, landlines, pen-to-paper assignments and even pagers. Interestingly, the National Museum Of Singapore unveiled an instagrammable new exhibition that sends visitors on a nostalgic journey to the past.
Of/On: Everyday Technology That Changed Our Lives, 1970s-2000s is an immersive and colourful educational showcase that explores how technology shaped the lives of Singaporeans. Certainly, technology plays a vital role in our daily lives today so it’s interesting to see how it changed through decades.
Exhibition highlights include four thematic zones mirroring past local settings of home, work and other social spaces in Singapore. For instance, visitors can relax in a yesteryear living room, visit a vibrant coffeeshop, step into a retro office to work on a typewriter and more. Plus, the exhibition features engaging activities like busting out of an escape room.
Undoubtably, visitors can reconnect with familiar technologies or millennials can get educated on what life was like before smartphones and tablets. Meanwhile, the instagrammable backdrops are perfect for photos.
Delightfully, this exhibition will stay in Singapore until October 30. See the National Museum website for more information.
