Seated around a table and colouring pictures, three children chatted excitedly about their time travel through Singapore’s history – from when the island was just a port city to the modern metropolis it is today.
Charlotte Heinritz, eight; Rayna Chopra, nine; and Lincoln Pook, nine, were among the first few children who got the opportunity to visit the Children’s Museum Singapore (CMSG) before its official opening on Thursday, and all three came away from it with new-found knowledge of the country.
When asked what the most interesting exhibit was, Charlotte said she enjoyed the Marketplace exhibit the most as she got to learn more about heritage trades in Singapore.
“This museum is really what kids want and will enjoy,” she said. “I really enjoyed my time learning different things through interactive activities and games.”
