Finally the National Gallery is opened this week. Eios make our trip there with lots of excitement & anticipation!
Mr Eio booked the tickets online. We thought we had to park at Funan center & walk over but we were so glad to find carpark in National gallery itself (basement).
Once our e-tickets were scanned, our journey began…
Eio kids having fun with this maze- like structure. The gallery is actually quite big. So it’s good to grab a map at the entrance before proceeding.
Walk walk walk to another wing to enter the Keppel Centre for Art Education.
Mrs Eio loves the benches & chairs she sees along the way…
At the former Supreme Court holding cell. Em amazed at the toilet in the cell. Nowadays, kids seldom see squatting toilet right?
Look at the structures & designs…
Yes! Finally Keppel centre for art education!!
Due to the large number of visitors, we could only have 45 minutes in this centre.
There are a number of “work or exhibition rooms”. E.g, 1 room where the kids can colour & do different kinds of worksheets (different level of difficulties) FOC. The project gallery where the kids can do some crafts (chargeable). Children museum etc.
Eio kids enjoyed themselves at the Art playscape. There’s a guide telling them stories & bringing them around the area.
Going up the slope for kids 1m (height) & below. El was fearful to go up alone.
How about having tea with papa…
Beware of crocodiles…
Finally, El went up the slope with Em.
Spot Mr Eio!
After the story telling session, the kids were free to roam around.
Roar like a tiger with the “tigress”! Lol.
After exiting from the playscape, eios went into the woods.
Tired & squatting around. Lol.
Errr… Frankly speaking, Mrs Eio must say only the Keppel Centre for Art education is more suitable for El (3 years old). The rest of the exhibitions are more for the adults. Em could probably understand some of them as he asked thousand & one questions.
If you are bringing young children to the National gallery, Mrs Eio would strongly advise you to do so after their meals as there ain’t cafes or restaurants suitable for them. If you brought snacks for the children, you may want to exit the gallery & feed them outside as we really don’t want to dirty the place. (Not sure if food is allowed too…)
Time to go home… Mr & Mrs Eio will visit the gallery again. Err.. Probably just the 2 of them. Heehee…
