Learn: Kids & Families
Sensitising kids to art and culture at an early age is essential for their academic and emotional development. It stimulates curiosity, broadens perspectives, and cultivates critical and creative thinking skills. An early education in the arts also enables children to appreciate and recognise the importance of preserving the nation’s cultural heritage. MAP aims to make this learning process interactive and interesting for the kids by hosting a range of programmes and skill building workshops designed specifically for them.
A key element of MAP’s mission is to change the perception of museums, from old repositories to a space of creative learning; to a perfect spot for families to spend the day and bond while discovering and engaging with our collection in new and fun ways. Our family-oriented programming and workshops are designed to cater to audiences of different ages within a family.
The Discover MAP packs that explore the museum’s collections through select artists, themes, and stories, also make a great family bonding activity. Download and access these resources at home to make the most of your weekend with your kids. It’s never too late to have fun or learn. We believe in doing both.
