The Belait District Museum hosted the first in a series of activities for children to make the school holidays educational and entertaining for them, yesterday.

Activities included traditional games, colouring sessions, quizzes, origami craft and a book sale.

Museums Department Public Relations Officer Mariani binti Abu Bakar said the activities are designed for families to spend time together, while learning more about the culture, traditions and history of the Belait District.

“We want more people to get into the habit of visiting museums, to gain a better understanding of our culture and history,” she said.

The museum also houses a Temporary Gallery for the canvas and batik art produced during the Trio Battle exhibition organised in August by the Museums Department. It will remain open until November.

More activities have been scheduled for tomorrow and Saturday.
