time, some of us might be fretting over what to do to make every minute more meaningful for our children.
Here are 4 events that we feel every child shouldn't miss, especially for our children with special needs because they are sensory-friendly!

2. Children’s Season at the National Museum
Dates: 27 May to 31 July 2017
Time: 10am to 6pm daily
Venue: Various spaces around National Museum of Singapore
Let your children experience the favourite Singapore family hangouts of the good ol’ days from the 1970s and 1980s at the National Museum this Children’s Season! Families can hop on a bumboat, trolley bus or trishaw, and go on a trail to experience the connections of friendship, family, monuments and memories through interactive exhibits and installations, sensorial stations, hands-on play, story-telling sessions and more.
For families of children with special needs, Children’s Season starts at 9.00am on Monday mornings in June, an hour prior to the official opening hour, so that our children can experience the museum without the crowd. Prior group booking is required for Quiet Mondays. The social story is also available for download to prepare your children on what to expect for the trip at the National Museum. Find out more here.
