National Museum of Singapore - We Built a Nation

The exhibition We Built a Nation is currently on at the National Museum of Singapore. The exhibition features the first  pivotal 10 years of Singapore after independence (1965-1975 ) and how Singapore's first Prime Minister and his team laid the foundation for a modern Singapore.
Some of the furniture and personal items of Lee Kuan Yew were on display including his famous red box, a symbol of his unwavering dedication to Singapore.
It was used to hold his important documents including speech drafts, letters, reflections and observations and was used by Mr Lee every day until February 4th, 2015, a day before he was admitted to the Singapore General Hospital where he died on March 23 at 91 years of age.
