With FREE admission and a special celebratory street party, you’d be crazy NOT to visit two of our fave kid-friend museums before they close for renovations!

As we mentioned in our recent roundup of kid-friendly museum exhibitions, two of our most favorite kid-friendly museums – Singapore Philatelic Museum and the Peranakan Museum – will both be closing this spring for extensive renovations.

Singapore Philatelic Museum Closing from 18 March to End 2020

The Philatelic Museum, which creatively uses stamps as a window to Singapore’s heritage (and indeed to make connections to the world at large), will be closing first, on 18 March, and is expected to re-open at the end of 2020.

Redevelopment works will include essential infrastructure upgrades to the museum building, as well as a revamp to the permanent and changing galleries to improve visitor experience. Don’t worry too much about missing their fun and creative exhibits, though, mama: during redevelopment the SPM will continue to engage kiddos through traveling exhibitions and education programmes at preschools, primary and secondary schools.

It will also keep up its signature events like the National Stamp Collecting Compeition and Draw My Stamp Story Art Competition. Stay tuned for more details on these annual contests!

In the meantime, get FREE entry!

In the lead-up to closure on the 18th, SPM will be organizing open houses with free entry on 10 & 17 March (both Sundays)! It’ll be your very last chance to catch the wonderful Little Prince exhibition and its accompanying programmes.

The Peranakan Museum Closing from 1 April til Mid-2021

With everything from dress-up to fun photo booths, the Peranakan Museum is one of our fave kid-friendly museums and we are sooo sad that it’ll be closed for 2+ years! Its upcoming revamp will give a 21st century makeover to all of its permanent galleries with new displays and content, while surely still displaying its comprehensive and extensive collection of Peranakan objects. We just hope they don’t do anything to its gorgeous exterior, the old Tao Nan building that dates back to 1912!

In the meantime, the Peranakan Gallery at Changi Airport’s Terminal 4 will remain open and will even feature a new rotation of exhibits later this year. You can also look out for pop-up exhibitions at various public libraries across Singapore!

armenian street party

Celebrate all things Peranakan at the Armenian Street Party

To celebrate its final weeks, the Peranakan Museum will be hosting the Armenian Street Party on 15 and 16 March as part of the Singapore Heritage Festival. This free nighttime event will feature tasty bites, a bazaar with one-of-a-kind collectibles, and even a dance party! Don your best kebayas and batik shirts and join in a Peranakan wedding procession or let the kiddos get hands-on with nyonya-inspired craft workshops. Let’s bid the Peranakan Museum farewell in style, mamas!
