First-Ever Children’s Museum Opens In Singapore!

Dedicated Space For Kids To Cultivate A Love For Life-Long Learning

Enter a world of wonder at the National Heritage Board’s new Children’s Museum Singapore (CMSG), the first museum in Singapore dedicated to children who are 12 years old and below. From 10 December, children can take a voyage back in time to olden-day Singapore, discover the wonders of nature, explore how our local communities celebrate birthdays and more!

The Children’s Museum will be a starter museum to cultivate a love for museums and lifelong learning. It also aims to inspire every child to be an engaged, adaptive, and responsible global citizen.

Guided by its tagline “Start with Wonder”, CMSG will function as a ‘starter museum’ to introduce young visitors and their families to the museum-going experience, sustain and nurture a sense of curiosity to explore, experiment, and facilitate a conducive environment for learning through play. Its curatorial approach is supported by educators and industry professionals, who gave inputs on the museum’s pedagogical strategies for the development of life skills. CMSG will also work with interested researchers on the value of play for children and will organize educational programs in collaboration with educators throughout the year to cater to children of different age groups and abilities.

  • Due to limited capacity, visitors are strongly encouraged to book tickets online in advance, or they may not be able to enter if the museum is full.
  • Adults must be accompanied by a child.
  • Tickets for December 2022 are sold out. Tickets for January 2023 onwards are available for booking 30 days in advance.
