Still looking for ways to keep your young ones entertained this holiday? There’re still plenty of fun options at the National Heritage Board’s annual Children’s Season Singapore.
This year’s edition goes beyond museums and will encompass all aspects of art, culture, heritage and education. Highlights this year include a wonderland of discovery and play at the National Museum of Singapore, where you can pick your favourite mode of traditional transport and embark on a trail to “join the dots” and experience “connections” as you discover popular family hangouts of the 1970s and 1980s and historical landmarks along the Singapore River.
