Singapore’s Playgrounds: 1930 – 2030 is an exhibition developed by the National Museum of Singapore in collaboration with the Housing Development Board. It covers the historical development of Singapore’s playgrounds, culminating in projections of future playgrounds imagined by Singaporeans. Come learn more about Singapore’s unique playgrounds and the people who have built (and are building) them, and contribute to the building of future playgrounds in Singapore!
