Children’s Season at the National Museum 2020: Get Curious – Change Is OK!

21 Nov 2020 - 27 Dec 2020
Various Venues
Various Timings
Varies with Programmes

Presented in conjunction with our Doraemon’s Time-Travelling Adventures in Singapore campaign and upcoming Home, Truly special exhibition, Children’s Season at the National Museum 2020 explores the topic of change through both self-facilitated onsite activities and a range of online programmes.

Identify how the lifestyles of different generations in your family have changed using our “My Family’s Stories” kit; find out how you can relax through our family mindfulness workshop and what are some other ways of coping with change; imagine a kinder society while participating in our Appreciation Campaign; and reflect on change while speaking with our artefact, a Setron television!

As 2020 draws to a close, we hope children and families can find inspiration in our artefacts’ stories of resilience and innovation, and learn that Change Is OK!

Recommended for families with children aged 3 to 12 years. Email nhb_nm_programmes@nhb.gov.sg for enquiries.
