Little Prince in the Dark

December 1, 2018 - May 28, 2019

Little Prince in the Dark
One sees clearly only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eye.
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the book The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, this exhibition focuses on how the story evolved, and its author.  The Little Prince: Behind the Story exhibition opened earlier this year (featuring stamps and philatelic materials, personal belongings of the author, illustrations, books and sculptures), and this addition – The Little Prince in the Dark Collection features six tactile sculptures, hand-painted and made from resin and fibreglass and covered with layers of marine lacquer, depicting iconic characters and scenes from the original story published in 1943.

Created by French artist Arnaud Nazare-Aga, they are displayed in a customised dark room with low-powered UV LED lights. The Museum actively encourages the community with special needs to visit, to feel, see and experience the exhibition.

Free admission for Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents.

10.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m.
