“Dear Senior,”: A Digital Inter-generational Pen Pal Corner

In the 1950s and 1960s, your grandparents and their friends grew up in a Singapore that was quite different from how it is today. Discover some questions posed by children and museum visitors to their senior pen pals and find out what life was like for our seniors when they were young!

Did you submit a Pen Pal Corner card at the Our Home installation during Children’s Season 2021? Scroll to the end to see if your senior pen pal has replied!
