A walk to the Asian Civilisation Museum

It was a lazy Saturday when we decide to venture on something educational – A museum trip for my active 5 year old boy. We took a train to Raffles place and took a nice walk along Boat Quay and pass Cavenagh Bridge.

The walk itself is very scenic and we walk pass a number of interesting and historical statues.

At the Asian Civilization Museum, the exhibits range from pictures, multimedia and many nice props like the Fishing Boat make the exhibits interesting.

There are several Explore Asian Zones. We like going in and out of this little hut.

Little games like making patterns from rubble bands bring our attention to the patterns used by artists and decorators.

Rubber Band and Circle Stations

The Chinese section have some scary statues but kids have fun pretending to be Chinese opera characters.

My boy enjoy playing with the interactive map and pretending to be traders weighing spices and rice with the weighing scale.
