Flipped museum for young children is a fascinating idea when carefully curated. Through this approach, children have access to the digital content of the museum collection, delivered through storytelling and guided activities infused with sense of adventure and curiosity. Access to home-based museum activity kit and a flipped museum book would enhance the experience as children has physical medium and tools to play with. The framework of 3Hs, i.e., Heads On, Hands On, Hearts On, is adopted in our approach when curating the flipped museum content delivery. The children will then be able to bring the book to the physical museum building to match the content they initially go through digitally with the ones they could see in person. The curation based on 3Hs was validated by experts and children. While the flipped museum content delivery was found to successfully meet all three components of Heads, Hands and Hearts-On, our study found that the most effectively delivered are through components of 'Heads On', i.e., knowledge and content; and 'Hearts On' i.e., the ones that triggered their interest and sense of belonging. Further considerations have to be taken if the elements of 'Hands On' i.e., skills and know how’s, are to be successfully delivered.
