Gran’s Short Stories
2.30pm & 3.30pm (30 min per session) | Growing Up Gallery, Level 2 | Free | Age 7+
Did you know that “Great World” is the name of a famous amusement park in the 1930s? Come listen to our friendly grandmother Mdm Si-Hoe Sing Sow speak about her Saturday nights spent there with family, and Sundays when she and her nine siblings would cram into the family car on an outing to the Chinese Swimming Club. Featuring engaging dramatisation and interactive hands-on activities, these storytelling sessions are a wonderful introduction to Singapore’s history and heritage, as told through our grandmas’ first-hand experiences!
Each session is limited to 15 children aged 7 to 12 years old, on a first come, first served basis. On-site registration starts from 1.45pm outside the Growing Up Gallery, Level 2.
