The attractive inflatable playground inspired by the dragon and water playground of our childhood years may only be available for play on weekends  open 11 am-1pm and 3-5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

But our weekday visit to National Museum still offers lots of fun and engaging activities. Here’s a snapshot on the cool stuff we get to see this year’s Children’s Season Event – Masak Masak: My Childood.

Sculpture Scribble

This is our favorite section.  There are a series of installations that can be play and interact with and we have lots of fun trying out them out. The interactive installations are made from scrap materials and combines physics and creativity and are recreation of works by famous Dadaist artists. The sculptures looks whimsical and quirky.

Quirky and Fun installations to play with.

We like the yellow faced installation which is inspired Joan Miro’s bronze sculpture back in 1967 called Woman and Bird. You are suppose to put the finger into the nose by pulling the strings. It is not too easy though as you need to control both strings and time the exact moment to move it.

Fun installations that combine art and physics.

Put as many marbles in the pot with just one turn of the wheel, move the balls into the containers by guiding it through the turning square.

We had a good time trying out and exploring the many installations.

Learn and explore

Come try it out…many of the activities are actually quite challenging.

Come and Play

We are amaze by the wonderful works created in this room with carton boxes. A life size toy store, a carrousel and a rocking horse are among the many things to see. Kids can have a quiet moment making their own toy house and decorating them with drawings and pretty stickers.

I am glad we keep this as our last stop so I don’t have to carry my little boy’s treasured artwork while doing the ither activities.

Larger than Life Games

Giant five stones, pick up sticks and marbles? Not exactly but just as fun. Kids learn the rules of some of our favorite childhood games in this section.

Our intrigued when the friendly facilitator handed us a tourch before entering the room turns into a great time as we make pictures and scribbles with our lights!

One little girl is having so much fun she jump and dance along with the accompanying music, making energising light painting while she is doing it.

Rouleaux

A quiet moment to enjoy the beauty of paper art.

Rouleaux or paper art  consist of miniature dioramas made out of reused toilet rolls. Amazing stuff. You  can peep through holes to observe a scene created with only a pair of manicure scissors and tweezers.
