4. Museum Roundtable Halloween Initiative – Creepy-Facts or Artefacts?


Forget Night at the Museum – It's time for Halloween at the museums! Inspired by the #CreepyObject challenge initiated by the Yorkshire Museum in the UK, the Museum Roundtable (a network formed by the National Heritage Board to support Singapore’s museum-going culture) will be showcasing creepy-looking museum objects on the I Love Museums Facebook page.

Learn more about these eerie artefacts and decide whether they're simply unnerving to look at... or if there's something truly chilling about their history. You can also test your knowledge with a series of "True or False" quizzes to win attractive and definitely-not-haunted prizes sponsored by the Museum Label.
