Museums Are Alive!

I don't normally plug my own events but I am making an exception this time around.
International Museum Day 2007 or IMD'07 was launched yesterday by MICA's Minister at the National Museum of Singapore. It is going to be a blast from the past with more than 80 activities across 24 museums for everybody! I am sure many of you would have seen the media coverage across all the dailies. Here are some highlights just to whet your appetites.
Indulge in a culinary adventure with HungryGoWhere's Eastern Surprise Food Trail, or dine amongst toys at the MINT Museum of Toys. Gain a fresh perspective of our history with Singapore's first museum tours or embrace a whole day of Koreana - includling lip smacking kimchi - at the Singapore Philatelic Museum.
Keen to invest in art? Why not attend the Art Market talk at the Singapore Art Museum and hear from prominent gallery owners as they share their secrets on art collecting. Lovers of architecture and street scapes can attend various talks on heritage buildings and design at the Singapore City Gallery or go on a tour of the National Museum's architectural highlights.
School holidays just around the corner? Don't know what to do with your hyper-energetic kids? Well, for a start, you can learn about healthy living at HealthZone, have fun at the Water Wally colouring corner at the Newater Visitors Centre, or learn about various currencies around the world at the Singapore Discovery Centre.
Cultural explorers can choose their own adventures too. You can hop on free bus tours along six different routes, compete against the clock at Memories at Old Ford Factory and Reflections at Bukit Chandu in a Heritage C-Race ("Amazing Race" style), embark on the Great Changi Challenge at the Changi Museum, or walk the colourful and charming streets of Keong Saik Road from the Singapore City Gallery.
With so much to see, hear, taste, feel or do, there really is no excuse to stay home this weekend. Or over the next week or so.
