There are 11 kid-friendly artworks to explore, two of which are toddler-friendly. Usually at galleries, kids are told not to touch the installations, but these are specifically designed for kids to interact with them! Little ones will love We Move This City, where artist Chiang Yu Xiang invites you to imagine what transport could look like in the future. Kids can get up close with his art and move the material blocks around to build their own imaginary vehicles.

At Can you see the forest for the trees?, artist Izziyana Suhaimi invites kids of all ages to care for the environment by repurposing waste (used textiles and recycled materials) and weave them into meaningful works of art. At SAMA SAMA (Together), artist and mum Fadilah Karim creates a space that reflects different moments in her life as a mother and invites you to make art and create memories with your family. Build forts and draw self-portraits of each other here!

In The Magic Forest, kids will be inspired by children’s art from all over the world. Here, they can get messy with finger paints or colouring to join the creative fun! Next up, check out When I Am With You, which is an area filled with precious treasures from the ocean and the amazing wildlife in its intertidal areas. At this art installation, artist Ly Yeow hopes that kids will be in awe of the ocean’s beauty and gain a new-found respect for the sea. Save the artwork HUTAN (pictured above) for last! This is a magical forest-like world designed by three artists who love to create safe spaces for kids to experience sounds, art and technology. Kids can slow down here and relax (and so can mum and dad!).

Ready for a fun day out bonding with the fam?
