Here are the highlights of the season:

Our Favorite Places
The Little Singapore Book comes alive at the museum. It brings old Singapore back to life at the time when people commuted by hopping on a bumboat, trolley bus or trishaw.

Pop-ups of popular family hangouts in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as cultural sites and historical landmarks along the Singapore River are favorite places for wefies and selfies. Families could explore Bumboat, Trolley Bus and Trishaw Trails.
