Saturdays@ACM is a family-friendly programme on the last Saturday of every month at the Asian Civilisations Museum. Families can spend a full day exploring the wonders of Asian art and folklore.
Enjoy creative, hands-on activities, interactive performances and drama, and storytelling in the museum’s galleries. Each month features a different theme – learn tales behind the popular cultural festival, embark on a journey across ancient civilisations, and make your masterpiece inspired by thousand-year old artworks.
