What’s new in the month of November 2019? From enrichment to entertainment, we suss out new line-ups in our bustling city.
Adventures in Nusantara
Explore Malay Heritage Centre’s new Children’s Space specially designed for young children aged 3 to 6 years. Located within the Permanent Gallery, the Children’s Space is a collaboration between the Malay Heritage Centre and The Artground – A Curious Place To Be.
Often times, parents struggle to make history and exhibitions palatable and relatable for their children. Adventures in Nusantara seeks to address that – it invites children to roleplay as three young characters, Hang Nadim, Ali Wallace and Wah Hakim, and introduces engaging multi-sensory activities and elements to the space.

Time: 10am – 6pm (last admission at 5.30pm, and closed on Mondays)
