New Children’s Wing Opens: PLAY @ National Museum of Singapore

Main

With a flurry of balloons, PLAY @ National Museum of Singapore was officially opened by Minister for Community, Culture and Youth, Mr Lawrence Wong on 24 May 2014.

The new children’s wing of the National Museum of Singapore is aimed at providing young children, between three and seven years old, a permanent space where they can discover Singapore’s heritage in a fun and interactive manner.

Comprising three spaces, PLAY @ National Museum of Singapore draws inspiration from the Museum’s collection such as the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings. Content is developed with the participation of parents in mind.

EXPLORE is the largest of the three sections and has interactive hands-on activities centered on themes such as photography, film and fashion. CREATE provides children an activity centre where they can create their own artworks. PERFORM will feature specially curated programmes in the performing arts.
