Artefacts Alive! Children’s Season 2022

The Runaway Kueh

There once lived a kueh-seller and a rickshaw-puller who worked very hard all day and all night long. One day there was a big commotion when a kueh decided to get up from the pan and run out into the streets! Everyone in the neighbourhood gave chase! The mischievous kueh laughed as it ran and ran and ran! Can the kueh keep running forever? Who will it meet along the way?

Meet the early settlers at the National Museum Singapore and together with our storyteller find out which one of them managed to catch the naughty runaway kueh.

Complete your museum visit by making your own glow-in-the-dark maze to take home.
