P5 Museum Based Learning

In collaboration with MOE, the National Heritage Board (NHB) has launched the Museum-Based Learning (MBL) programme. The MBL programme by Indian Heritage Centre (IHC) is targeted at Primary 5 students who will learn more about Indian culture and the contribution of early Indian settlers.

NHB has engaged a pool of Museum Educators to lead and facilitate interactive learning experiences for school groups visiting IHC. This learning journey to IHC will complement the National Education and Social School Studies (Primary 5) curriculum. 

  • Students will have the opportunity to come face-to-face with authentic artefacts have close observations and be curious about the stories behind them.


  • Have the chance to be engaged in in-gallery conversations using inquiry-based learning and visual thinking strategies on the artefacts. 

 Learning Experience
  • The multi-sensory learning experience will include story-telling, tactile objects learning, hands-on activities.


  • Tours of the museum’s permanent exhibition galleries to enhance the experience of the students at the museum and to support learning in an engaging manner.



Please note:

NHB will be launching a school booking portal for teachers to directly book school visits. The portal is slated to be launched by March 2022.

For Onsite MBL, schools may choose from the following two time slots:

 Morning  9am to 11am

We can accommodate a maximum of 40-80 students at any one time depending on the SMM guidelines.
