ArtScience Museum Singapore

Art and Science at Marina Bay Sands

Shaped like an outstretched hand – or perhaps even a bunch of bananas – the ArtScience Museum sits on the waterfront in the shadow of Marina Bay Sands, and provides the city with ever changing displays, from Dali to Harry Potter.

A place of great interest for children and adults, a visit here is both entertaining and educational, exploring the links between art and science. The gallery is impossible to miss, on the bay side walkway of the famous Marina Bay Sands Hotel, ten minutes’ walk from Bayfront MRT Station.

Just like its big brother next door, the ArtScience Museum has quickly become one of the icons of Singapore’s skyline. The building was designed with consideration to the environment: windows at the tips of each gallery provide natural light for the galleries and the reflection pond at the base collects rainwater, which is then recycled for bathroom use. Surrounded by a large lily pond, at night lights shine upwards from the building, creating a connection between the earth and the sky. The museum allows for up to 21 gallery spaces, but it can be changed depending on the exhibition. Inside it is a blank canvas, designed to complement whatever works are being showcased.

The permanent exhibitions are split into galleries based around certain themes or ideas. Visitors enter “Curiosity” via a floating staircase, with questions about the relationship between art and science scrawled on the walls. Inside you will find more information on the thoughts and designs that were considered when creating the ArtScience building, both in terms of engineering and beauty. Heading upstairs you will find the “Inspiration” gallery.

This multimedia room is focused on six objects that helped shape the world today including Leonardo Da Vinci’s flying machine, both a work of art and forward thinking scientific concept. At the highest point of the building there is “Expression”, a cinematic presentation emphasising some of the great triumphs of both science and art, including buildings, flights, robots and maps.

There is also a number of touring exhibitions that are on display at the ArtScience Museum. In the past this has included artefacts from the Titanic, items from the Harry Potter film sets, and art displays dedicated to Vincent Van Gogh, Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol. With such varied exhibits and a very interesting permanent space, ArtScience Museum in Singapore is a great journey of discovery for both children and adults.
