    The building is situated in a noisy and bustling part of the Little India district in Singapore, but going in, the feel is very different as it is quiet, cool and relaxed.

    Even for a local like myself, the exhibitions on the 3rd and 4th levels of the building about the Indian community in Singapore both past and present are refreshing as they relate the contributions made by this minority community as well as the rich experiences they came with when many of these ones migrated over to Singapore in the 19th and 20th centuries.

    Highly recommended for anyone who wants to enjoy a slow and relaxed way of learning more about the Indian diaspora in this part of the world.

    Good that they have a limit to the number of pax per session, though it can still get pretty crowded on a weekend.

    Enjoyable for the little ones < 8 to explore simple scientific matters eg how wind can blow things, how excavators work, etc.

    Brought a 3, 5 and 7 year old and all enjoyed the place!

    Love how the museum curators managed to use the element of play to let the children learn about Singapore's history.

    So many things our kids enjoyed doing there:
    - Watching the "show" to the left of the main entrance on level 1, that was supposed to simulate the children being transported back to the past... I suppose to let them feel immersed in the whole "Singapore's Past" experience?
    - Designing a giant birthday cake using felt-crafted decor
    - Selecting songs on the "jukebox" and dancing to the songs
    - Designing their own stamps and drawing birthday cards using the tracing tables
    - Beaming their own stamps up to the screen using the "Team Lab" style projector
    - Putting together the puzzle of a wooden "Vanda Miss Joaquim" orchid, Singapore's national flower
    - Motion-controlled flying game, pretending to be an owl that's common in Singapore
    - Exploring the "pseudo ship" that most of Singaporeans' great-grandparents arrived in when they decided to leave their hometowns in China, India, etc. An video-interactive stepping game beside the ship
    - Checking out the "pseudo stores" that the early immigrants in Singapore would have set up, showing the common marketplace scene in early Singapore (1900s)
    - Checking out some of the pseudo birthday treats and traditions of each race/religion and their meaning - I liked that this encourages the kids to learn and understand about others' race/religious culture, and to celebrate together
    - Playing in the mini-playground upstairs

    It was also thoughtful that they set 1 hour and 45 minutes timeslots of playtime, namely at 9am, 11am, 2pm and 4pm. That meant they have 15 minutes of "reset time" to tidy up between each timeslot, so that the museum can be presented and maintained in their best form, ready for the next group of kids to thoroughly enjoy the space, as intended.

    This place is so meaningful and great for the young ones to learn about Singapore's culture in fun and interactive ways - but parents/guardians, do make sure you play a part in educating them and enjoying this space together!
