{May 30, 2009}   International Museum Day – Children’s Season

since my return from melbourne, i’ve been thrilled by the make over that the national museum of singapore has done. the old dame’s exterior is still a recognizable icon of colonial history but the new direction it takes to be inclusive and relevant has taken a new dimension.

when i was young, i frequented the singapore history museum only to find the same old exhibits i.e. diorama of the founding of colonial singapore and the arrival of the immigrant workers. history was not contested, just narrated. it wasn’t a place you’d find many children either because the sacred grounds were hush-hushed.

since last year however, the national museum of singapore has held programmes specially with the future generation of museum visitors in mind – children’s season. although the target audience is for kids and families, i thoroughly enjoyed these events.

my niece has visited both children’s season 08 and children’s season 09. i believe she, and her little brother will continue the habit. so will i. great job nhb!.
