SINGAPORE - The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) has extended its exhibition Angkor: Exploring Cambodia's Sacred City by a week till July 29, 2018.

This was due to "popular demand", the museum said in a statement on Monday (July 9).

ACM direct Kennie Ting said: "Based on the positive feedback from visitors, both the Guimet Museum and ACM have agreed to extend the exhibition till July 29, making the next 3 weeks the last chance to see this magnificent display of masterpieces - which likely will never be in Singapore again."

The exhibition showcases more than 140 sculptures, watercolours, drawings, and historical memorabilia from Paris' Musee national des arts asiatiques - Guimet.

The exhibition costs $12 for Singaporean adults, while children and seniors enter for free.

For foreign visitors, tickets are priced at $20 for adults, and $14 for children and seniors. The tickets include entry to ACM's permanent galleries.

Free daily docent tours, conducted by volunteers, are available with admission. No registration is needed.

 

English tours take place daily at 11.30am and 2.30pm. Mandarin tours are on Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm, while Japanese tours are on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1pm. French tours take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 10.30am and 3pm respectively.
