We went along to the dreamworks exhibit which was really cool. It was so nice to go in and relax in the air conditioning on a hot Singapore day!

There were 3 exhibitions during my visit to the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands (MBS). They were Dreamworks Animation, The Deep, and Singapore Stories. Basically, Dreamworks Animations consists of exhibitions of how animations such as the famous Madagascar and Shrek were created from scratch and how ideas were generated. The Deep exhibits creatures in regards to fauna which are... More

This building is extremely beautiful and interesting from the outside and houses some even cooler exhibits inside! We saw the Deep and Dreamworks exhibits which were both very well curated and astonishing in their inclusiveness.

Having discovered this place through my research, I had pretty much decided that this was one of the places that I was going to visit while in Singapore. The thing is that with many of these museums you need to time yourself properly otherwise you won't find any exhibitions here of any interest. This was the case when I visited,... More

Visited the art science museum during our national holiday, queue was long but manageable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The exhibitions was Dreamworks, Deep Sea and Singapore Then and Now, it was an informative experience which we enjoyed and will be back again when there are other exhibits that cater to our interests.

I visited twice. Once the Da Vinci exposition and now The Deep and the (free) SG50 exposition. They were all very nicely presented and interesting. If you have any kind of Singaporean ID (S-Pass, EP, etc.) don't forget to bring it with you, there is a discount. One annoying thing: the aircon is very powerful, take an extra layer of... More

Went on the SG50 weekend so entry was free for Singaporeans, but had to queue almost 2 hours to get in. I'm sure normally there wouldn't be a queue. The exhibitions that were on display when we were there were the DreamWorks exhibition, which showcased DreamWorks' masterpieces from drawing board to the big screen, and The Deep, which showcased the...

Opened in February 2011, in a uniquely lotus shaped building with ten skyward extension, it either look like a pair of cupped hands or a blossoming lotus flower. The ArtScience Museum is part of the entire Marina Bay Sands complex in Singapore and the building itself have become as iconic as the '3 legged' MBS hotel behind. Privately owned and... More

After nearly queueing for 45 minutes, we were admitted into this iconic lotus-shaped building. The main exhibitions were "Singapore STories: Then, Now, Tomorrow", "Dreamworks Animation - the Exhibition" and the Deep. I found them to be mildly of interest but would not have paid the normally chargeable S$22.00 pax. Maybe if they have more exciting exhibitions in future ...

I entered by curiosity and a employee of the museum handled me a free ticket for the exposition about the "Strait Times" . I took this chance and rode the elevator to the 3rd floor. The exposition was about all the aspects of the life in Singapore since the newspaper was created. I found it very interesting and complete. You... More

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
