We were very disappointed by this place. It's a fairly long taxi ride from downtown and our two teenaged sons enjoy going to science/technology museums in many of the cities we visit on our travels. But for a city that's trying to be at the cutting edge of the technology revolution, I have to say this place was terrible. If... More

Visited with three six year olds. We had high expectations but it's tired and old. Lot of items are poorly designed, for example in the sound area there is do much noise that you can't hear anything from the individual attractions. Restaurant is the same old same old MacDonald as everywhere.. To avoid. Needs massive restauration

Have not been to a science centre that is so jam pack with this amount of information. Come here if you want to have a read about everything. However if you are looking for a place to bring your kids for a leisurely day out and have some interactive fun while learning something, suggest you try some other place. This... More

We’ve been here several times, and always leave with interesting new knowledge, taught in a fun way. In addition it shows the important contribution to science made by Singapore. Yes, a few demonstrations don’t work, but overall we always have a good day here. If you come by MRT, make sure you know the way from the station. It is... More

This place is huge. We took the MRT and then a bus to get here but didn't have enough time to see everything there is to see and do. There was also a dinosaur exhibition on while we were there (Titans of the Past) which we made sure we saw. You really do need a whole day to see everything.

This was my first time taking the train here and, although it isn't a long walk away, if you intend to take the train here too, make sure to check your (walking) route as there aren't any signs (or at least we didn't spot any!) guiding you here and most people (we'd asked) don't know where it is. Although this... More

A huge fan of Science Centres, I had to see this one. It felt a bit dated, but was enjoyable nonetheless. The dinosaur exhibit was featured and enjoyable. While some of the exhibits were facsimiles, it was wonderful to share these ancient creatures with a child. While there are certainly better Science Centres around the globe, if you have a... More
