As part of the museum’s commitment to be more inclusive, we have created a series of programmes and resources for students with additional needs to make the most of their visit.
A) GosTan Back: A Time-travelling Adventure on Wheels
GosTan Back is a story about a young boy who gets the chance to save the future by going back in time. In this interactive theatrical journey, audiences will experience our local history and artefacts through the Singapore History Gallery, which features storytelling and a whole lot of hands-on fun!
This production is designed to support younger students with additional needs to experience the museum.
* Each child will be paired with a student volunteer throughout the session.
B) Resources for Special Education (SPED) Groups and Quiet Mornings
As part of the museum’s commitment to be more inclusive, we have designated the first Saturday (9am – 11am), and first and third Thursdays (9am – 12 noon) of the month as Quiet Mornings to provide children with additional needs with a quieter and calming environment to experience the galleries.
Schools can use the following suggested resources to enrich your students’ visits:
i) Activity booklets such as the Young Explorer’s Trail, which can be modified to suit your students’ level.
ii) A social story and sensory map of our galleries to prepare your students for the trip.
iii) Sensory bags can be borrowed for the duration of your visit.

SPED schools interested in visiting NMS can contact us at email@example.com and we will be in touch to co-plan a learning journey, which includes activity sheets and a craft activity.
