In the exhibition
CHILDREN'S AREA : BABA STUDIO
Within the exhibition BABA BLING, interior signs of wealth in Singapore, the Baba studio is a playful space where children aged 3 to 12 can touch fabrics, discover unknown smells, listen to a story or music, touch artefacts and have fun discovering the Peranakan culture! Baba studio also has a photo studio where you can put on some costumes and pose for a picture!
What do you eat in Singapore? How do you dress when you get married? To get the answers to these questions, follow Kim! She will show you her Singapore home and invite you to take part in three games displayed on three touch screens placed within the exhibition. These will help you better understand the Peranakan lifestyle.
What if you were invited to live with a Singapore Peranakan family? Listen to the secrets of the Babas and Nonyas who lived in this house at the beginning of the 20th century. They will take you on an original immersion voyage to discover their luxurious and refined culture.
In French and English, from 7 years up.
