It may be a little too late to book a flight for the March holidays, but there are plenty of family-friendly events and new places—from bike trails to exhibits—on our sunny island for you to explore! So if you are looking to have fun with the family during March Holidays, here is a list of places to visit and things to do:
Visit the Wonders of the World from the Science Centre

No passport? No problem. For those with the travel bug, skip the PCR tests and visit the Science Centre for the Brickman® Wonders of the World exhibition instead. Here, you can expect a tour of 50 of the world’s most iconic landmarks—like the Great Barrier Reef, Golden Gate Bridge, Great Wall of China and much, much more—all constructed with LEGO® bricks. Those with a creative streak can also visit the interactive Master Builder Zones to build their own masterpieces!
Event period: 25 March to 3 July
Time: 10am to 8pm
Admission fees apply
Ride Down the New Round Island Route

If you’re getting bored of cycling along East Coast Park or the Rail Corridor, and looking for something just a little more challenging, give the new Round Island Route a try! This 75km trail—now the longest recreational connection in the east—covers the eastern half of Singapore, bringing you past places like Rowers Bay and Changi Beach Park all the way to Berlayer Creek at Alexandra.
The Round Island Route is accessible from any of the park connectors and parks along the route and has plenty of shelters for you to rest at. You don’t have to do it all at once, but if your family is up for it, set aside a day to see how far you can go!
Travel Back in Time at the National Museum

Experience Singapore's history through augmented reality and gamification at the National Museum of Singapore's Dislocations: Memory & Meaning of the Fall of Singapore, 1942 exhibit.
This exhibition offers a different take of World War Two (WW2), and uses its 200 personal artefacts across seven exhibition zones—complete with video projections, immersive experiences and digital touchpoints—to depict the fall of Singapore and the aftermath, from the perspective of civilians. Pop by during the weekends and you can also take the complimentary shuttle bus to Changi Chapel and Museum and Reflections and Bukit Chandu to get a fuller picture of what WW2 was like.
Event period: Until 29 May
Time: 10am to 7pm
Admission is free
Get a Taste of Winter at the Ice Hotel Gallery

You might not be able to get to one of those ice hotels in Scandinavia, but the Ice Hotel Gallery at Snow City is a close second! This new attraction comprises five thematic ice and snow art installation zones developed by Singapore’s very own ice sculptor, Jeffrey Ng . With sculptures and furniture carved entirely from ice, this is a great place for a “day-cation”, where you can snap some instagrammable shots that make it feel like you’re overseas.
Admission fees apply, but these include access to other attractions within Snow City as well. Also, don’t forget to wear long pants and socks, because only jackets, boots and gloves are provided.
Tuesday to Friday: 10am to 5pm
Saturday & Sunday: 10am to 6pm
