Exhibition Highlights

Dialogue with Time (Guided Tour)


Dialogue Room 1 – Ageing is a Personal Matter

The senior guide will share his or her thoughts with the participants on what happy ageing means via his or her personal story and experience. Participants get to share their take on happy ageing as well through a dialogue with the guide.

Yellow Room

In the Yellow Room, participants will get to experience the different stages of ageing such as a weakened sense of hearing, seeing and mobility.

Explore and interact with five exhibits that simulate age-related limitations, helping you gain an insight into the sensory, physical and intellectual challenges that come with old age. You will also find information that can help to cope with these limitations if they occur.



Pink Room

In this room, visitors can listen to five videos, featuring short stories of active senior citizens and the experiences gained in their later years. These centre around topics such as “Finding Love Online” and “Re-employment of Seniors” aimed to help adopt a positive attitude towards ageing.

Dialogue Room 2 – The Future of Ageing

Participants will be engaged in a quiz on population statistics in Singapore. A discussion on the future of ageing will be facilitated by the guide.
