Museum setting up retreat for special needs children

As part of efforts to make cultural and heritage spaces more inclusive for those with additional needs, the National Museum of Singapore (NMS) will be introducing a Quiet Room as a retreat for special needs children.

Designed to provide a calm and relaxing setting for these children who may experience over-stimulation from the outside environment, the 25 sq m room will be able to accommodate three to four families at any one time.

This was announced during a gala event yesterday at the museum hosted by French banking group BNP Paribas, the main sponsor of the room.
