PhotoHunt theme : How is your sky today?/Grin

It's the June school holidays in Singapore. It was sunny and humid this morning but there was a heavy downpour in the afternoon.

Fortunately I had planned a visit to the National Museum where my young nephews explored our multi-racial and multi-cultural society through the themes of Food, Film and Wayang, Fashion, and Photography in air-con comfort.

Glad that there is a Children’s Season – Island Adventures 2013 (18 May - 30 June) where lots of fun activities are planned for children.

The young boys enjoyed a wayang peep show and learnt how photo studios of a bygone era produced coloured prints in the 1950s and 60s. Each boy received a complimentary activity book and we purchased optional Craft Kits for additional hands-on activities.

    1. No, Walter was on display for a short period outside the Singapore Art Museum.

      My bad, second Chief Minister of Singapore Lim Yew Hock. :P

  7. The museum looks like a great place to visit. Bet your nephews had a great time, especially with getting some fun 'take home' activities.

  8. Hi ECL, very cool photos. It's wonderful that the visit was free for the day and included an activity book for the children. Great take for the two themes this week.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. It seem all of the world the word "holiday" is used. But when kids get out of school for summer it called a "vacation"
    Most around here go back to school the first part of September.

    Coffee is on
