Soak in a Day of Culture & Heritage

And off we went to a Museum Trip!

Of course, to save the hassle of changing the buses here and there, we took a cab to the National Museum of Singapore.. *Ranting: Argh, there’s ERP charges on Saturday!!!*

It’s like out 5th trip to the National Museum already since it’s FREE for all SINGAPOREAN and PR! *It’s that good, so you don’t have to rush to finish all exhibits in one day, but could come back any other day and continue*  

We managed to catch the Celebrating Radio: Sounds from the Past exhibitions which will be there at the National Museum of Singapore, The Salon till 17 Jul 2016.

Celebrating Radio: Sounds from the Past traces the evolution of Singapore’s broadcasting history from the 1930s to 1980s. Items on display include a phonograph dating back to the 1920s, radio permits and photographs, as well as a selection of radios from different eras.

There’s even kid activity area where they could showcase their creativity by designing their very own record album cover or vintage radio box (at a minimum fee). It’s also a DREAM come true for them at being a radio DJ in a vintage broadcasting studio.

*See how professional he is when he is working*

We just briefly walk through the main museum exhibit this time round as we are here for the Masak Masak 2016. This year Masak Masak 2016 held from 28 May 2016 – 31 Jul 2016, and each year, they will have different activities, workshops, installations for the kids and also the young at heart adults. 😀

Well, he tried out 3 installation:

  1. Let’s Play! by Tay Bee Aye & School of the Arts (Singapore) | Concourse, Level 1
  2. Le Bestiaire by various artists (France) | Platform, Level 2 (small fee required)
  3. Clumsy Dumpty on the Wall by NUS Industrial Design (Singapore) | Glass Atrium, Level 2

He did not try the FunCycling by Bikes 4 Fun (Singapore) as it’s suitable for kid above the age of 5. 😀

Just a side note: We realised that the Level 3 Masak Masak play area for kiddos was closed.

Till then, we hope to come back for Masak Masak 2017 and more Museum trips!
