I had previously visited the titanic exhibition and it was a good experience. Seeing that they brought the Da Vinci's codex exhibition, I was veryvexcited to bring my family to view it. Although generally the exhibition was really informative and good, I was disappointed that a few of the hands on display was not in working condition. Also, if you... More

To get to see the photos of Anne Liebowitz, the works of Dali and the works of Andy Warhol all in one year isn't a regular feat for an asian country. Singapore's govt spend the time and money to have this happen. And this is a museum built at par with any in the world for its architecture and the... More

Oceans of possibility was interesting as were some of the other photo exhibits. However the da Vinci exhibit really comes up short. It primarily contains parts from his codex but that very quickly becomes repetitive and unengaging since you are staring at mainly illegible pages. It's interesting to see a few. But more variety of his work would be better.... More

I have been here several times to view different exhibits. First of all, I really like it that locals enjoy a lovely percentage discount- it makes you feel a sense of belonging finally (and probably the only place that gives such perks to us). Secondly, the exhibits are always so well organised and beautiful - the details are informative in... More

interesting place. The building itself is interesting, shaped like put a hand or Lotus flower. There was a really interesting display of Chinese art, one set which was subtly animated and presented on large TV screens. Really innovative and enjoyable to check out. I do get the feeling they could do more with the space they have available, it was... More

Even if the position of the museum is fantastic and the building amazing, in my opinion there is really nothing interesting inside.

Lacked the depth, wit, and excitement typically associated with such defiant and bold building architecture. The exhibit I viewed was a photography exhibition by world-class lenso-diva Annie Leibovitz. As usual, Annie was amazing! Exhibit pieces selected did come with social intonations of a masculine resurgence, which was hard to miss, but what was not quite pardonable for an exhibition featuring... More

The building is a destination in itself. During my visit there was a great photography exhibit and they also had a great free workshop on making cyanotypes. Definitely check this out if you are in town!

The Lotus Building adjacent to the great design of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, is a great match for the look and the content. Check out the exhibits and make sure that you spend time looking at the building from across the water, as you cross the helix bridge, and from the base. Very well done.
