Discover the story of Emerald Hill through secret tours, art, and performances
in home and private spaces.
Emerald Hill, a former nutmeg plantation, is a perfect illustration of the relationship between botany and commodities that circulate the Empire. But there is a dark side too.
Scientific exploration exists alongside exploitation of new lands. Valuable crops are stolen, smuggled and monopolised. The colonial still haunts us.
Explore, collect and piece together your very own story of Emerald Hill in 19th century Singapore.
