5. Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth
When: 6 May – 27 Aug
Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth is back as the seventh edition of Singapore Art Museum’s (SAM) annual family-focused exhibition.
The event invites explorers of all ages to take a closer look at our surroundings and the environment we reside in, through immersive, tactile and interactive artworks by nine local and foreign contemporary artists.
Taking place during the four-month-long exhibition are various exciting programmes. Look out for the Family Night at the Museum: on 7 and 21 Jun, where groups can join a special after-hours adventure through the exhibition with the curators themselves. This activity is suitable for children aged seven and above.
Psst, all visitors can enjoy free entry to Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth on Open Day (6 May), Hari Raya Puasa (25 Jun) and National Day (9 Aug). Otherwise, admission charges may apply.
