Cancellation of Istana Open House on 13 May 2021

04 May 2021

In view of the latest COVID-19 Multi-Ministry Taskforce’s guidance to reduce the level of social interactions in the community, the Istana Open House (IOH) on Thursday, 13 May 2021 will be cancelled. 


Those who had successfully obtained their tickets for this IOH will be able to gain admission to the next IOH using their existing tickets.


With the COVID-19 situation stabilising in the preceding months, we had previously planned to reopen the Istana to the public in stages, starting with this IOH in May. However, since we announced the restarting of this IOH, there has unfortunately been an increase in the number of local COVID-19 cases.  We have therefore decided to err on the side of caution and cancel the IOH. We apologise for any inconveniences caused.


The Istana looks forward to welcoming visitors again once the COVID-19 situation has improved.
