Children’s Season 2020 is back for the year-end holidays. It is a chance for families to spend quality time with each other and to experience some bonding activities while discovering what the museums in Singapore have to offer.
At National Museum of Singapore, Children’s Season is being presented in conjunction with the Doraemon campaign and an upcoming Home, Truly special exhibition. It features a series of programmes designed to encourage kids between the ages of 3 to 12 to get curious and learn that change is okay.
Here are some of the onsite and online programmes that lie in store for Children’s Season 2020 from 21 November to 27 December 2020.
