Playeum opened Singapore's first locally grown non-profit Children's Centre for Creativity on 19 September 2015 at Gillman Barracks. Its visions and mission embrace a commitment to the value of play, the arts and creativity in the lives of all young children aged 1 to 12, regardless of their abilities or socio-economic backgrounds.


The Centre presents themed hands-on exhibitions that change once a year and is open to ALL families to visit and explore.

I-Opener: Play with the Senses

Co-curated and produced by Playeum's Creative Directors Imran Mohamad and Dr. Esther Joosa, and Tech Catalyst Din Chan, the exhibition invites children aged 1 to 12 to explore their senses through play and the arts.
