~ Night Ride @ The Peranakan Museum ~

It is the 4th year since the Night Festival has been held. In conjunction with the Voyage Night Festival 2011, there will be late night free admissions to the following museums with a range of programmes and activities.

Date: 26 - 27 August 2011 & 2 - 3 September 2011 (till 2am)
Location: National Museum of Singapore, Singapore Art Museum, SAM at 8Q

Date: 26 - 27 August 2011 Only
Location: Peranakan Museum and The Substation

This is a great opportunity not to be missed and we took the children down for a Night Ride at Peranakan Museum. Admission is free from 6pm - 2am with activities starting from 7pm - 11pm. In addition, free goodie bags are given to the first 200 children and free ice-cream for the first 500 visitors from 7pm onwards. (While stocks last).

There was already a crowd lingering outside the Museum and Substation when we arrived. With the colour changing lightings, the museum looks extremely enchanting.

The special exhibition - Sarong Kebaya will take the visitors to a fashion trend of the Peranakan women and it's interesting facts. 

The children collected their goodie bags consisting of a free notebook, an activity book, a mini puzzel, and a bookmark.

Denver and Gladys had a lot of fun participating in the craft section within the glow-in-the-dark room - "Glow with the Flow". There are sand and paper crafts for the children and its fun to see the clothing and crafts glow in the room.

The kiddos spent time doing their sand craft (with Mommy's help) and were very happy to choose and play with the coloured sands.

Before we leave the dark room to check out the other activities outside, we left personal notes on the wall signifying the fun, love we had at the museum.

There are a range of performances lined up at the main lobby and Ixora room of the museum. From shadow puppet show, songs, dance, multi-ethnic drum to sand art performance. It's a night full of entertainment and cultural richness.

Denver and Gladys like the Sand Art performance and were trilled to see how the images are transformed with the slender movement of a pair of hands and fine sand. At the end of the performance, the childen not only had a chance to be up close and personal with the actual set, they also touch and play with the sand, doing up their very own sand display.

Before leaving the musuem, we had our free vanila & chocolate flavoured ice-cream. It was a wonderful experience and exposure at the Peranakan Museum. The Night Ride ends tonight, if you are interested, do make a trip down and join in the night full of lights, music and life.
