    Fantastic attraction

    Worth every penny. The Art Science Museum appeals to people from all walks of life. I went for the Future World Exhibition and found it interactive, fun, immersive, insightful, creative and photo worthy. I could touch, move and play with the exhibition pieces. The exhibition allowed me to create my art piece and have it become part of the exhibition. Such involvement increases the connection and enjoyment factor. It’s on the pricer end but you won’t regret paying for it.

    A very busy crowded museum but great exhibits and always worth checking out when passing through Singapore. They have sections dedicated to Ancient History all the way to the Future, so there is something for everyone’s interests. One of the best museums I have been to.

    This museum was part of the tour we purchased and it was brilliant! It is literally one of the best museums I have ever been to! The Future World exhibition was beautifully presented and very informative. The museum was a little crowded, but it was still possible to have a good look at the exhibits. The building itself is really nice too. Really enjoyed the time here.

    The exhibitions here are always worth checking out, especially if you’re interested in design, media, and art. I was able to catch The Art of Brick Exhibit and was completely blown away by it. The tickets could be pricey but worth every penny if the show is matched to your interests. It would be good though to separately research on reviews for a particular exhibit to help you set expectations. But as a venue, Art Science Museum I think is very good at showcasing variety in its line-up of events. I have to mention as well that the building is an interesting piece of architecture. At the very least, go for a quick photo op with one of the city’s rising landmarks.

    ArtScience Museum is really a great place to repeatedly go. I enjoy the extensive choices of exhibition they showcase and it really doesn’t matter if you are young or adult. They have really good stuff and the experience is engaging unlike any other exhibitions I have seen before. Their ongoing show Future World is a must, MUST, MUST go. Highly recommended!

    Very interesting building and a perfect photo opportunity with the towering Marina Bay Sand hotel in the background. I thought the exhibits were a bit expensive as well. I went to see the Mummy Exhibition and only took me 20 minutes to run through the whole area cause it didn’t really get my interest. There’s also a short 3d documentary about a Mummy they found in Egypt’s pyramids.

    I was going to see the other exhibits Essential Eames and 50 Greatest Photographs from National Geographic, but I couldn’t really justify the cost for seeing photos…all the photos were at the entrance anyway (picture above).
