Celebrate Singapore’s 53rd birthday at the National Museum! Come dressed in your best res-and-white outfit and join us for a day of fun programmes inspired by Singapore’s icons, including exhibitions about our history and culture, live music performances and a showcase of short films!
Child-friendly programmes include:
A Live Doodling Activation
Let’s explore the future of play this National Day as we celebrate what unites us. Visitors are encouraged to imagine tomorrow’s playground, and how it continues to bring us together. These scenarios will be drawn by the doodlers on to the canvas.
Embark on a bouncy adventure with interactive inflatable playgrounds that are inspired by iconic mosaic playgrounds of yesteryear! You can also go on an “animal hunt” with our animal springers for more bouncy fun.
