Discovery Space: Museum Designer

Using the National Museum’s architecture for inspiration, children designed, made or drew their very own museum during the April 2016 Discovery Space program.

Two children dressed as designers.

Continuing Culture

Children made wearable art and learnt string games, inspired by the Museum’s Encounters exhibition in January 2016.


Check out some of the art and string creations shared at our Continuing Culture Discovery Space.
