As fairly frequent visitors to Singapore from our home in Jakarta, we were becoming a bit jaded by watching the stilted performances of Singaporean theater groups and the fairly commercial overtones of even the supposedly boundary breaking modern art. So it was with a deep sense of satisfaction that we chanced upon these excellent displays of art and technology at... More

Came to visit Future World with a friend in the last 2 hours (4-6pm) and time felt quite tight to get the "picture perfect" pictures we wanted, especially for the last installation where we experimented with different lights through accessing the website provided on our phone. Most visitors didn't seem to realize that they could control the light exhibit through... More

We visited the museum on Sat 18th Sep mid morning. I'd looked up the exhibitions that were on & they seemed I interesting to us. Big Data & Future World. Entry was $25p.p. which was great value we thought. The building itself was incredible to be inside of and walk around. The exhibitions were amazing! Future world was full of... More

Our family paid a visit on Friday. There is free admission for young children every Friday. The indoor activities are wonderful - coloring and projecting onto the wall, indoor slide, and rolling fitness air balls. Also it has a beautiful light show - space - which made of thousands of LED flushing in rhyme to reproduce the imaginary stars. Highly... More

The ArtScience Museum, which was opened by Singapore's Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, in 2011, has 6,000 square meters of space across 21 galleries. It features both permanent exhibitions, like Leonardo da Vinci's Flying Machine, and touring exhibitions. The futuristic building, designed by architect Moshie Safchie, is like an opening lotus flower.

I guess whether it is good depends on the exhibitions featured. For my trip, it was Big Bang Data and Future World - both were interesting with lots of interactive exhibits.

I've been here multiple times for multiple different exhibits and I've always enjoyed it. Although not the biggest museum, they make good use of the space provided for their exhibits so you can always spend a good 2 hours whiling away your time and enjoying the exhibits. Not to mention that its also cheap and very modern with wifi apps... More

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.
