“Harry Potter Exihibition!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Amazing displays of artifacts and props from the movie Harry Potter! Well planned and lots to see and hands on. From the different kind of wands, costumes and even spell books to the jerseys and monsters you see in the movie. Awesome! Pity that the stuff on sale (Eg: The wands) are too expensive!!

Dear jimmylkw,

It’s great knowing that you had an enjoyable time at Harry Potter: The Exhibition, and had fun with the interactive components in the exhibition.

I hope to see you back soon to visit the exhibitions and join in our workshops and activities.

“The exterior is the most fascinating part”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

The ArtScience Museum is a very cool part of the Marina Bay Sands resort. The Moshe Safdie lotus flower exterior has made this one of the most photographed attractions in Singapore. Being a new development as part of a resort, don’t expect a deep collection here. If you are hoping to learn about the rich history of Singapore, you might want to look elsewhere. Rather, enjoy one of the big touring exhibits that you’ll recognize from everywhere else in the world if you are a regular museum goer. This attraction is worth a look if you’re at the Marina Bay Sands and not into gambling, but a proper museum like the National Museum of Singapore would be a better bet if you’re looking for a real Singaporean sense of place.

“Nothing artsy or scientific here”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

When we visited, there was only a Cartier, the watchmaker, exhibit on offer. Nothing else available in the whole building! While the watch exhibit was alright, it alone did not warrant the admission fee and the visit in general. Looking at the building from the outside, you think there will be tons of cool things to look at and learn about inside... Granted it was a new building and maybe more exhibits and attractions have appeared since we've been there in January 2012

Dear lmitravel,

Thank you for your review.

I am glad to know that you visited the Cartier Time Art exhibition. I am sure you would have also enjoyed Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition which was on show in the Museum at the same time had you had the opportunity to visit it.

We have new travelling exhibitions on show every few months and I look forward to your visit in the near future.

“Only for exhibitions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

I went to visit a temporary exhibition (Warhol): it was very well presented, but the rest of the building was a waste of space a waste of time.

“So So”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Beautiful architecture but the permanent collection is poor. It is a good idea to check if there is a specific event there before decide to go. The pictures outside the museum are better than inside.
