Libur Keluarga’s selection:
- MINT Museum of Toys: Museum mainan “MINT

- Museum Nasional Singapore
Museum tertua di Singapura yang terbagi menjadi 2 bagian utama: Singapore History Gallery dan Singapore Living Galleries. Wajib dikunjungi.
- Singapore Flight
Rasakan sensasi duduk di bangku pilot dan mengendarai pesawat mengelilingi dunia!
- Snow City
The option of escaping from the hot and humid Singapore weather and experience a ‘winter getaway’ Main ice-skating, lempar-lemparan bola salju, hingga bermain ban seluncur in hot tropical weather. Oh the things that are possible in Singapore..
- The Singapore Flyer
This MUST be the real deal for the aeronautical whizzes in your family.
Currently the world’s largest Observation wheel, The Singapore Flyer snatched the title from the London Eye and China’s Star of Nanchang. It comprises a 150 m (492 ft) diameter wheel, built over a three-story terminal building, giving it a total height of 165 m (541 ft). Not a thing for people with fear of heights (like me), tapi katanya worth it banget to ‘hang’ there and enjoy the view as far as to the Batam islands.
- Animal & Bird Encounters
A lovely place that shows the intelligence, agility and responsiveness as displayed by our animal friends. One of the nature loving things to do at Sentosa, plus the entrance is free.
- Sultans of Science
Making its premiere in Asia at the Science Centre Singapore, “Sultans of Science”, is a global touring exhibition celebrating the contributions of Muslim scholars in science, mathematics and technology during the Golden Age of the Islamic World (700-1700 CE), and the influence of their discoveries and inventions on modern society. Covering the main fields of scientific endeavor from mathematics to navigation, astronomy, medicine, engineering and technology, architecture and flight, the exhibition will feature 35 interactive, sensory and static exhibits, proposing that notable discoveries and inventions currently attributed to Western scientists were made by Muslim scholars.
- Singapore Philatelic Museum
Stamps? What are those? If you were one of those kids who had a sahabat korespondensi, then you know the warm meaning of receiving letters and seeing those postmarked stamps on the envelope. The SPM is a lovely building with lots of heritage and great things to see for children. My kids were having a blast at the dragon lair, where they get to do some archeology with fossils and row a dragon boat. Parents looked with awe and reminisce to the great collection of mailboxes. Fun exhibition is the rare collection of Tin Tin stamps and Herge’s sketches and letters
