The best annual membership passes for families
1. National Gallery Singapore
If you have some budding artists in the family, or even if you just love looking at fabulous art yourself, then the National Gallery is well worth an annual membership. There is easily a year’s worth and more amazing stuff to see and do here, and kids will absolutely love Gallery Kids where the young ones can learn about the art on display and rich history of Singapore through interactive, hands-on exhibits. And, we’re sure the kiddos will enjoy embarking on a kid-friendly audio tour, attending workshops and working through the activity guides as well. Membership perks include 10-15% off shopping and dining outlets (helloooo, Courtyard Cafe!) and free entry to all existing and new exhibitions, plus invitations to members-only events.
Membership: Singaporean and PRs – $30 for adults, $25 for students, children 7-12 years, and seniors 60 years and above. Children under 6 can visit for free!

With its seven zones, action-packed shows and street performances, Universal Studios Singapore has more than enough going on to warrant a year’s worth of visits! Membership gives you discounts on your pit stops at F&B and retail outlets, as well as special offers on VIP tours, your own special VIP turnstile at the entrance gates, sneak previews of new rides and attractions plus $5 off stroller rental for when the little legs get tired.

Explorer Program exclusively for passholders, priority entrance (including your own special red velvet rope to make you feel special), slushie refills at $5, discounts on selected Resorts World events, plus one free ice-cream for children with annual passes and more!
