If you haven’t already heard or watched the news, here’s sharing a new place for kids to hang out – PLAY @ NSM!
It is the first dedicated area for young children to take their first steps towards museum-going with interactive exhibits and special activities that encourage learning through play. Inspired by the Museum’s collection, different sections have been set up for kids to explore and learn about Singapore’s cultures.

coloring can be done in this spacious room opposite meant for children who wants to do some creative artwork
Right outside the “coloring room” is the extension of the garden at the sundeck.
Children can sketch anything they want using coloured chalks provided!
This is a great way to get young kids started on visiting museums. Though I must add, kids 3-5 years old would probably find this more fun than the older kids!
