We’ve scoured the web (going even beyond the first page of Google) to bring you all the happenings in June! From newly opened places to kids activities all around our little red dot.

Now you don’t have to worry about boring your kids (or yourself) doing the same old thing this June holidays!

1. DinoQuest – Science Centre Singapore

DinoQuest – Science Centre Singapore

If you have little ones who love dinosaurs, they’re most likely to enjoy Science Centre’s latest edition, DinoQuest. The exhibition has 7 thematic zones that’ll bring you into the world of the prehistoric creatures through animatronics, holographs and virtual reality.

The highlight of the exhibition has to be the most updated reconstruction of Timimus, a tyrannosauroid discovered at Dinosaur Cove in 1994. And if your little ones want to make a dinosaur fossil discovery of their own, they can!

Apart from the interactive exhibits, Science Centre also has a line-up of educational camps where little ones can explore the world of paleontology.

Shaw Theatres Dreamers has switched out its dark setting for vivid colored chairs (which might I add are very comfy) and walls adorned with vibrant murals, giving off a very cheerful feeling. Also available in the theatre hall are bean bags, mini ball pit and tunnel to keep your kids occupied until the movie start.
