Children’s Season 2018 at National Museum of Singapore invites children of all ages to explore and experience play at the Stamford Road museum. The activities at the museum will be held from 26 May till 24 June 2018 during the June school holidays 2018 in Singapore.
This year, Children’s Season 2018 at National Museum of Singapore coincides with the exhibition The More We Get Together: Singapore’s Playgrounds 1930 – 2030. The exhibition is the first at the National of Museum of Singapore to be dedicated to the subject of playgrounds.
This just means that there is even more reason to head out to play at National Museum of Singapore during the mid-year school holidays 2018. Here are six activities and things for kids to do during Children’s Season 2018 at National Museum of Singapore.
#1. The Dynamic Lines of Our Nest
Part art installation, part creche, The Dynamic Lines of Our Nest occupies level one of the National Museum of Singapore’s Rotunda. Created by French artist Matali Crasset, the work pays tribute to the awakening of curiosity in toddlers. A circular playpen area allows toddlers to look upwards at the colourful installation which also doubles up, when twirled, as a humongous mobile.
#2. Bouncy Adventures
Children’s Season at the National Museum of Singapore is the time when the retro-playground-inspired bouncy castles come out. This year, these inflatables tie in well with The More We Get Together exhibition indoors. The old Dove Playground and the Clock Playground are among the heritage playgrounds that get a new lease of life as bouncy inflatables this year. Bouncy Adventures takes places from 26 May to 24 June, 10 am to 5.30 pm, on the Front Lawn of the National Museum of Singapore.
#3. Young Cinema
Timescapes – A Singapore Anthology is a collection of short animated films which reflect on love, life and Singapore’s landscapes. This Young Cinema programme at National Museum of Singapore is presented in collaboration with Robot Playground Media and be held at The Salon on Saturdays and Sundays, 26 May to 24 June at 10 am and 2.30 pm (two hours per session).
#4. World Kids Colouring Day Competition
Grab your colour pencils and join in a colouring competition on 2 June from 1 pm to 2.30 pm at the museum’s Glass Atrium.
