The kids loved this one the most! Take a trip through a maze of endless mirrors, and watch your reflection turn into many things – ghost, shadow, stranger and companion!
A house-sized kaleidoscope, this!
Expect to be super-confused and don’t panic if you are lost. It’s perfectly normal. 🙂

Which child doesn’t love colours, rainbows and all things magical?
This indoor art installation is another kiddie favourite and is located at the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM).
OH! Treasure Chest is a life-sized kaleidoscope full of colour, images and music that will wow children (and parents) of all ages.
Like an Alice in Wonderland experience, the multi-sensorial installation promises to be nostalgic and wonder all rolled into one.
There will also be DIY Kaleidoscope workshops on 19, 20, 26 and 27 January 2018, where children can get busy with their own tiny creations, as a memento from the festival.
