The advertising and the high price of admission ticket are misleading at least. There was not a single original Da Vinci work of art. There was a lot poor quality xerox copies and wikipedia information printed on walls plus some scaled down wooden models of machinery based of Da Vinci sketches. Da Vinci must be restless in his grave.

I’m not very much for museums but I wanted to see the inside of ArtScience Museum and as DaVinci certainly is one of the all time geniuses I decided to visit the DaVinci exhibition. The exhibition is very interesting and very well presented and in fact I spent much more time there than intended from the beginning. Well worth both... More

The Da Vinci exhibition, was brilliant and we enjoyed going through the various rooms. The highlight was seeing some of the original manuscripts from Da Vinci. I don't think it's really suitable for young children.

This is my 2nd time here and wanted to see both the da Vinci and prudential eye exhibits. The former is excellently laid out with different rooms/sections - architecture, geography, art, weaponry, mathematics etc. Quite a clever way to present the multi-faceted da Vinci. They also had a few rooms for other artists inspired by da Vinci. 1 reviewer gave... More

My sister and I visited the ArtScience Museum whilst staying at Marina Bay and it was a wonderful cultural experience. We went on a Monday morning and it was extremely quiet (we only saw five other tourists when we entered). During the time was the Da Vinci display, which had some original works from some of Da Vinci's sketch books.... More

Being a bit of a mathematician I thought this would be interesting and it really was. This exhibition lays out simply the way Da Vinci thought and sketched and painted, but just as much the way he thought about the world, connecting light and sound, humans and nature etc. As other reviews have said, original pages from the Codex are...

This is the worst "science" museum I have ever seen. The ticketing staff was incompetent, the layout of the Da Vinci exhibit was confusing and the content was mostly facsimiles of his work. There were about 10 pages of his original notes from Codex Atlanticus and that the only interesting room in the entire building. This exhibit is not a... More

Excellent Exhibition! This is an unusual, fascinating presentation of Leonardo da Vinci with a focus on his mathematical and engineering genius as much as his paintings. The exhibition includes original painting, working models and Codex Atlanticus pages. Certainly well worth a visit, but take a cardigan, some rooms are quite cold!

I am a "fan" of Da Vinci so I made sure I visited the place , even though my holiday was short. There are some nice models and a nice video presentation of the Last Supper. However , to me the most valuable thing was to see about twelve of the original manuscripts from the Codex atlanticus. Don't be dismayed... More

Staying in Marina Bay

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.
