    Fantastic attraction

    Science Centre’s travelling exhibition is constantly putting up different items throughout the year so the experience is different every time! During my visit, I enjoyed the Star Gazing Night show and watching kids play at the waterworks. Science Centre has you covered with food establishments so you and your kids can spend your entire day learning and playing.

    Fantastic attraction

    The science center in Singapore is an amazing place and provides lots of educational value to kids. We were able to spend only a few hours there but I think children would love to spend more than half a day there. During our visit exhibitions and shows were happening there which were nice to see. The galleries are big enough to hold a maximum number of people. Make sure you take an extra pair of dress for your child if you are planning to visit the waterworks playground. A must visit place for students.

    Fantastic attraction

    One of the hidden gems of Singapore tucked away in the quiet West area. The exhibits are very interesting and educational, making sure you are never bored inside. There are plenty of exhibits that will take up a full day of your time and be sure to bring your kids.

    Excellent

    Great place for families with kids. There is a lot of educational value in the exhibits the science centre has to offer. Only down side is, it is pretty out of the way from town!

    Fantastic attraction

    I find the place highly informative, and my and friends and I easily spent about half a day going on the science experiments. Sort of make us feel as though we are kids again. Great if you are into science and stuff, or just to bring the kids over for some fun.

    It was good

    I liked most of all the pretty butterflies! A surprising carnival-like feel to something supposedly as serious as Science. Very good as an inspiration place for schooling children who hate Science but need to develop an interest in it in order to be better educated, and more motivated to study for their exams. Moderate entertainment for an adult, but likely to be fun and an afternoon filled with fascination for little children.

    Fantastic attraction

    This place is more informative and suitable for students and children. It is a great place for those who are interested in science and discovery too. But for myself I find it a bit boring and I enjoyed more in the Snow City.

    Fantastic attraction

    We went to Science Centre with very little expectations, however what we experienced there blew us away. There were many interactive science-related exhibits, which engaged us throughout. Our family enjoyed the butterflies exhibit and every exhibit at the science centre was educational. It is a place where we spent a few hours, and the time spent here would depend on the interest level of the visitor. The Science Centre is highly recommended for science lovers.

    I wouldn’t say its a stand out attraction in Singapore. It was good fun, but if you run out of time, you could probably skip this.
