What are some kid-friendly things to do at the National Gallery Singapore?
Glad you asked! National Gallery Singapore is actually one of our favourite kid-friendly museums in the Little Red Dot. Not only is it home to the world’s largest public collection of Southeast Asian modern art, it also has dedicated space and programmes for kids. Here are exhibitions to check out:
1. The Keppel Centre for Art Education
As highlighted above, the Keppel Centre for Art Education is an interactive and immersive space that allows children to explore and be creative. It’s no wonder that it won the 2018 Children in Museums Award! Drop by its Learning Studios to create an art piece or two, or let the kids play detective at Mural Play!. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for its Family Art Workshops too. Admission is free for all.
2. Liu Kuo-sung: Experimentation as Method
The Gallery’s latest exhibition consists of more than 60 paintings by Chinese ink master, Liu Kuo-sung. But that’s not all; you’ll also get to see items from the artist’s personal archives, which highlight his innovations and contributions to modern Chinese ink painting. You’ll need a General Admissions ticket to access this exhibition.
3. Living Pictures: Photography in Southeast Asia
Here’s a photography exhibition you won’t want to miss. This exhibition showcases over 300 works spanning 150 years from colonial times to modern day. You’ll get to see how the role of photography has changed throughout the years, from a tool of European exploration, to a form of fine art, and finally, the memes and selfies that we see on social media today (something the young ones can relate to!). A General Admissions ticket is required to access this exhibition.
