The Istana Open House will be a combined event to celebrate Labour Day and Hari Raya Puasa.
On May 13, the Istana will be reopening its gates to the public for a combined Istana Open House (IOH) to celebrate Labour Day and Hari Raya Puasa.
The Istana has been closed to the public since February 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will reopen its grounds gradually for the IOH with safe management measures in place.
At this year’s IOH event, you can look forward to visiting the many gardens and open spaces within the Istana grounds, including the new Inclusive Garden launched by President Halimah Yacob in February.
To avoid large group gatherings, however, there will be no performances, tours, booths or food trucks during this IOH. The main building will also not be open to the public.
Safe distancing ambassadors will also be deployed to ensure visitors observe safe distancing during the event.
Interested visitors will have to register for tickets in advance. Tickets are free based on a two-hour slot each, and will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.
You can register for a ticket starting from Apr 29 at 10am here.
