Set amidst a scaled-down, indoor “mini-city”, Interaxcity is a place where kids are the community heroes.
Your child can choose to take on any role in our town. They may wish to be a chef in our restaurant, a construction worker at our building site or a doctor at our medical centre. There are also always openings at the local florist, cars to be repaired at our mechanic shop, or even the opportunity to be a pilot, a postal clerk and more.
As they explore our city, your child will have the opportunity to engage with you and their peers. They can choose to simply interact with the hands-on exhibits or complete tasks based on their developmental abilities (which have been especially designed in conjunction with early childhood educators). Either way, the emphasis is on blending learning and fun through play, imagination and discovery.
Interaxcity is for kids of all abilities and backgrounds but is best suited for children aged between 3-9 years old (i.e. kindergarten and early primary age). Younger children (under 3 years) are absolutely welcome to visit (and will have an awesome time!), but we ask that their parents keep an especially close eye on these youngsters as some exhibits have small parts.
Our core values are
to offer children a safe, inspiring space;
to promote inclusive, respectful behaviours;
to nurture a passion for learning; and
to encourage community engagement
