In commemoration of the 82nd anniversary of the Fall of Singapore, the National Museum of Singapore has put together Battle of Singapore 2024, an annual event comprising activities and installations that explores the stories of Singapore's war-time past.

One of the highlights is Dancing Poppies, which invites viewers to appreciate the human ability to find joy in simple acts of creativity. This installation features kinetic elements that capture sunlight and move together with the wind, while the red poppy is a symbol of remembrance with hope and joy.

You can also try your hand at creating your own paper poppy flower at the last stop of the exhibition. Don't forget to pen down your thoughts and head to the Chapel to 'plant' your creation as well. The DIY Paper Poppies activity will be available till 10 March 2024, from 10AM to 5PM daily (except Mondays).
