Installations and Showcase at Children’s Season at National Museum 2021

Our Home and Our School

Inter-generational Showcase: Our Home – Singapore

What is “Singapore” to our seniors and children?

Visit a showcase of artworks created as part of a virtual inter-generational programme! Inspired by conversations on selected museum artefacts covering topics related to Singapore’s identity and housing in the 1970s and 1980s, seniors and children designed their own currency notes and co-created mini HDB flat dioramas together with artist Joanne Lio.

Our Childhood

Have you ever played with a wind-up toy or a gasing? Spot four big standees featuring popular children’s toys from the 1950s and 1960s. Reminisce about the good old days by taking a photo with the standees!

You’ve met them in our Otterly Famtastic video. Now join them on two fun Artefact Hunts! Explore the galleries, solve riddles to discover little-known facts behind the mysterious artefacts, and complete the hunt to redeem a prize sponsored by Plano at the end!
