You can’t miss the building – designed by world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie, it’s shaped like a lotus flower in bloom that sits on top of a small pool of water. The seating areas around the building are rare quiet spots downtown, perfect for a relaxing pit stop away from the maddening crowds in the Central Business District. While most other museums in Singapore focus on local and Asian art, ArtScience Museum constantly hosts big acts across a whole range of interests. Previous exhibits have included the works of Warhol and original masterpieces from Leonardo Da Vinci, and touring exhibitions such as Titanic: The Artifact Experience and Mummy: Secrets of the Tomb. There are a selection of interactive activities for children and each Friday is family day, when up to two children under the age of 12 can go free with every adult ticket purchased.
The Marina Bay area is a stone’s throw from key attractions like the Singapore Flyer and Gardens By The Bay, the Central Business District, shopping centres, and the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort.
