There’s no better time than now to take your kids museum-hopping. Some 19 museums around Singapore have unveiled a slew of exciting activities for the eighth edition of Children’s Season, an annual programme aimed at cultivating in kids an interest in the arts. Here are some highlights both you and Junior can look forward to:
Masak Masak at the National Museum of Singapore
Take a trip down memory lane at Masak Masak. Here, Junior can jump on bouncy castles inspired by Singapore’s iconic mosaic playgrounds, play a larger-than-life version of the popular flag eraser game, marvel at an installation made from origami animals, and more. Through August 10; admission is free.
Once Upon a Time in Asia: The Animal Race at the Asian Civilisations Museum
At the Asian Civilisations Museum, both you and Junior will get to learn more about the cultural tradition of the Chinese zodiac animals. Expect installations such as an entire skeleton of a reticulated python, animals fashioned from recycled materials, and even specimens of animal poop (fake, thankfully!). Through August 16; admission is free.
Straits Family Sunday – Supersized! at Peranakan Museum
Boogie to songs enjoyed by young Peranakans of the past at Straits Family Sunday – Supersized!. Both you and Junior can also dress up in baba and nonya costumes, and make arts and crafts inspired by the museum’s own collection. Only on June 14; admission is free.
