We spent hours at this beautiful building at Marina Bay Sands catching up on the Dinosaurs & Annie Leibowitz shows. Very informative and an extremely fun afternoon. The facility is top notch as are the exhibits. We even loved the multimedia multiscreen presentation on the 3rd floor where they gave us an insight into what made them create the Art... More

Located in a modern, photogenic building, the museum is located in direct proximity to Marina Bay Sands hotel. It features changing exhibitions. Depending on the type of exhibition (recent ones included topics like Lego, mummies, dinosaurs...) this is a good place to visit for families with kids. The ArtScience Museum is bigger from the inside than it looks like from... More

I arrived at the museum at 6:30, 1 hour and a half away from closing. Before, I had decided to go for both exhibition but the reception advised me just to visit one because they would be closing soon and the Dinosaur would take 1-hour-visit and I would not spend enough time for Annie's. So I decided to visit the... More

The design and amazingness of this building nearly far-outwighed the exhibition. Nestled in Marina Bay, The ArtScience Museum deserves a visit during the day and the night.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Annie Leibovitz a Exhibition at the Art and Science Museum. What an amazing life she has led. The family photos were just as enlightening as her landscapes, war photo's and the Rich and Famous.

I visited the dawn of dinosaurs exhibition in the art science museum today. The building itself is fascinating but inside was even more impressive. If you are in anyway curious about biology and history I would highly recommend it. Full genuine fossils and lots of information on the dinosaurs themselves, along with methods used to extract bones and use them... More

This is a fascinating building entwined in the Marina Bay Sands complex. Externally it is a cool piece of architecture with a very modern entrance allowing access to the main exhibition floors. I've seen a few grumpy reviews but really this is an interesting building that will be more often that not judged by the quality of the collections shown.... More

Having had to realise through the mall to get to the so called museum,I was extremely unhappy to be told that I could not go in for another 90 minutes,and only then if I paid 15 singapore dollars to see a show.why call yourself a museum if you are not.

Loved the dinosaur exhibit with our 3 and 5 year old. They learnt a little and had fun too. I loved the photography exhibit. The circular building really lends itself to art exhibits as it takes you on a journey through the pictures. Stunning building. Well worth a visit.
