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

The National Museum of Singapore will be presenting Children’s Season at the National Museum 2020, themed Get Curious! Change is OK!. The museum explores the topic of change amid the current uncertainties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, through a variety of self-facilitated onsite activities and accessible online programmes for young museum-goers and their families to enjoy.

Onsite Activities

Onsite programmes include the Get Curious! Gallery Hunt, a tic-tac-toe quest for families to complete, and the Get Curious! Gallery Trial, where kids can explore the topic of resilience and innovation through the displayed artefacts.

Take part in a tic-tac-toe game in the galleries and discover fun facts about the¬†artefacts! Simply create an account on this microsite, hunt for the Get Curious!¬†standees in our galleries and scan the QR codes and answer a simple question of the exhibit to ‚Äúcollect‚ÄĚ them!

Complete one line of the tic-tac-toe to redeem a NMS Doraemon Singapore-themed 3D miniature magnet collectible designed by Supermama! Complete two lines, and you can take part in a lucky draw to win a set of Doraemon collectibles!
