National Museum of Singapore

Come and join us in a dedicated exploratory space for children at the National Museum of Singapore this season!

A new creative platform by the museum for children ages 3 and above, The PlayDome invites children to express their unique voices through meaningful and fun play activities based on their visual inspirations and experiences drawn from the galleries and objects found in the museum.

For its inaugural year, The PlayDome is delighted to partner Playeum®, The Play Museum, to create this wonderful child-centred museum experience at Level 3. This exploratory space consists of dedicated zones, where children get to play with props, materials and get really hands-on in creating original art works inspired by the collection in the museum’s Living Galleries and its iconic Dome.

Presenting over 10 original works and installations from artists and creative professionals in Singapore and internationally, The PlayDome combines a mix of active and reflective engagement charged with imagination, making it a memorable museum experience for children and families!
