Pretty common in Singapore but was amazed by the inefficiency there. 10 people at the cashiers, 3 clients before me and took me 30 minutes to get in. Shortest expo ive done in my life. Massive construction work going on at that time (was not told) that made it a pain throughout the entire visit.

Intresting building in Marine Bay area. I saw Annie Leibovitz-exhibition, which was great. Museum is quite small. A great and inexpensive thing to do in otherwise expensive city.

The museum might be small by most standards, but it is a destination in itself, just for the design! A big, stubby, concrete lotus in a real lotus pond housing an interesting layout - each gallery room is a wedge around a central column. You go full circle. We saw the Annie Leibovitz exhibition which we had earmarked before we... More

We weren't able to enter the museum but the structure alone is already an eye candy. Weird looking structure but beautiful attraction at night -- just beside the Marina Bay Sands hotel :)

We were lucky enough to (unintentionally) visit on a national holiday and as a result, entry was free. It was usually $$23 / £11.50 per person - Price varies depending on the exhibitions. We saw "Flux realities", an exhibition by contemporary Chinese artists and the Annie Leibovitz exhibition. Both were very good. The building itself is an interesting design -... More

I had a few hours to visit Singapore by MBS and decided to visit the rate and science center. It looked quite interesting from the outside. They had an exhibit from Annie Leibovitz which I expected would be good. Overall it was ok but I was a bit disappointed. On one side the exhibit itself was a mix of great... More

I visited the museum by surprise and had a great time at the Annie Leibovitz A Photographer's Life 1990-2005 exhibition. The building itself is already an interesting attraction. A pond that surrounds the building nurses a large amounts of lotus. I had my sandwich at the noon time sitting in the shade by the pond and enjoyed the breeze and... More

Located in the heart the Marina Bay Sands, the ArtScience Museum is much more art than it is science. Exhibit I went to see was the science of photography, but was just a keyur photo exhibit from famous photographer. The $15 entry fee, get you into a very modern building that is supposed represent a lotus. While the architecture is... More

When I went there was a photographer exhibition which was excellent - the rooms are open, bright and the spacing is just right. Clever design and it works well.
