Once you have arrived at National Museum of Singapore, register at the main visitor counter before heading up to the second level where there is an activity registration counter next to the bridge with the swaying lights above it.
Playing Home in the Museum
To play Home in the Museum: A Treasure Hunt, you will need an internet-enabled mobile device. The activity requires you to search out QR codes hidden throughout the museum in order to complete the quest. There are a total of nine stations to complete.
At the activity registration desk, you can scan a QR code to get you started.
Home in the Museum: A Treasure Hunt tells the story of Dennis and his family making their way around the museum. Read the story and follow the clues to the correct location.
Once you have reached the location, search for the activity QR codes. These could either be on tags or stickers that have been pasted on the wall.
If you are having an issue finding the location, you can head back to the activity registration desk to ask for help.
The Home in the Museum: A Treasure Hunt activity can take anywhere between one to two hours to complete.
Rewards for the Visit
And there is a reward for completing all the stations, an “audience” with the museum’s big boss and a little heritage-themed keepsake to bring home.
Kids will probably be anxious to complete it and rush through the various galleries and exhibits in search of the next checkpoint. After completing the activity, do spend some time to look through the various exhibitions, such as Home, Truly and Picturing the Pandemic too.
