Children’s Season – Island Adventures 2013
Saturday 18 May to Sunday 21 July 2013
Concourse and Craft Zone, Level 1, National Museum of Singapore
Children’s Season is an annual festival organised by the National Heritage Board and the museums around Singapore. Currently in its sixth year running, it seeks to engage and educate the young children on the historical and cultural wealth that Singapore has to offer.
This year, the National Museum of Singapore will be transformed into a wonderland of fun and interactive activities specially catered to the little ones starting 18 May to 21 July 2013.
Island Adventures is back with an exciting line-up of child-centric programming which includes fun interactive displays and special activities that will delight young visitors and their families! A showcase that celebrates Singapore’s historical narratives, Children’s Season – Island Adventures 2013 explores our multi-racial and multi-cultural society through the themes of Food, Film & Wayang, Fashion, and Photography. Children can be an old-time hawker and invent a unique ‘Singapore dish’, watch wayang peep shows, be a tailor of different cultural costumes, and learn how photo studios of a bygone era produced coloured prints in the 1950s and 60s. Each child gets a complimentary activity book, and parents can purchase an optional Craft Kit* for additional hands-on activities. There will also be roving acts and story-telling sessions at selected timings throughout the season, with outdoor film screenings of Walt Disney classics The Aristocats and Pinocchio, in June.
*Optional Craft Kits are available at $5 which includes programmes, Island Adventures – Roving Acts and Island Tales.
