If coming via the mtr, it is a 5 minute walk, it is not signposted from the station, so proceed towards the library or the shopping centre. My daughter enjoyed her time there, but not all exhibits were working. She made a great toy with the assistance of a secondary school student who was manning " be a scientist for... More

Science center give science experience more fun. But please make sure your kid already know a little about science. Snow city and this area could be rate as poor. The chamber are to small.

Sadly everyone is right - the Transformers exhibit is a blatant advertorial for the movies. While they attempt to put some "history" of the Transformers into it, the exhibits were really lame. The biggest draw is a laser show (think Entrapment) and showtimes for the movie (yeah, the Hollywood one, not some cool retro Japanese one). The tickets are pricey... More

The Transformers exhibit is an absolute waste of money and time and you really should NOT go there! Our family of 2 adults and 4 kids (6, 7, 12, 16) were utterly disappointed and have to say it is REALLY expensive too! We felt totally ripped off. There is nothing to do, nothing to see, there is no "interactive and... More

The Singapore Science Centre is very well organised, has loads of exhibits and interactive activities, video/audio information and plenty to keep adults and kids educated, entertained and happy. The fire tornado was very cool (um, hot) as well. The Human Body Experience (HBX) was fantastic! You climb through the mouth of a massive human head and slide right into the... More

I think the science centre would have been great a few years ago, but on our visit many things just didn't work the way they should or had parts missing. Think it's a great idea and would love to visit again if it was updated. We mainly went to see the Transformers exhibition which my daughter / husband loved, I... More

To any Board members at the Science Center who are listening out there, the Transformers exhibit is an unconscionable waste of money and an insult to the memory of Dr Toh. It does nothing but devalue the Science Center's reputation. The Science center itself is wonderful and many of the exhibits such as the dinosaurs exhibit and the human body... More

After returning from a recent visit to the Transformers exhibit I cannot believe that the Science Centre would associate their good name with this joke of an exhibit. Our group of 4 adults and 4 kids (ages ranging 4-8yrs old) made the biggest mistake visiting this place on our recent visit to Singapore. After spending $180 the kids were too... More

The center is kind of run down, nothing much to explore. Especially Transformer exhibit not worth for the price, nothing much to view, kids are disappointed.
