Enjoy a day out with your family at the Peranakan Museum.
We offer a range of educational materials and learning resources that can be used on museum visits, or back at home.
Self-guided visit: Anak Anak Labels and Activity Trail for children
Search for the specially written Anak Anak labels in our galleries, and use the questions and prompts on them to encourage close looking and spark conversation! For more fun-filled activities, pick up a copy of the accompanying activity trail booklet from the museum lobby, and use it to guide you through your visit. You can also download the activity trail below.
Psst…Anak Anak means “children” in Baba Malay! For ages 5 and up.
Anak Anak Activity Trail
If you need a break during your visit, chill out at the Exploration Zone on Level 3, and enjoy a mural by local artist-duo Ripple Root. Spot different Peranakan motifs on the mural and complete a colouring sheet available at the space. You can also download the colouring sheets below.
