Visit to Peranakan museum - wonderful experience

Last weekend we visited the Peranakan musuem of Singapore where they are exhibiting a special section on Ramayan -revisited as they call it. It was a wonderful experience and we had a good time there. It was enjoyable for us as well as for the kids. There were volunteers who were telling stories of different episodes of Ramayan to kids and to the keen tourists interested in the ancient Indian mythology.

There was a Javanese dance performed by Indonesians in which they beautifully performed the Abduction of Sita.

Then there was a Kathakali performance which was so enchanting and was enjoyed by one and all. Kids had a great time as they also had lot of activities to do. In the picture below, my son learns to make a elephant using clay.

Still patient...going on.. Final touches..


Here it is ..ready!!!
Here are the other pretty clay model exhibits...pretty aren't they???


And then we moved towards sand painting...He puts the coloured sand on the readymade floral design...what enthusiasm!!!
This is the finished product..
You can have a look at the museum website for the location and timing if you are interested to visit the place.
