Singapore Science Centre

Singapore Science CentreThe world-acclaimed Singapore Science Centre has one of the country's largest collections of educational exhibits devoted to science. It houses more than 850 interactive exhibits, depicting the wonder and beauty of science.

After a SGD 38 million revamp exercise, new facilities have been developed at the Science Centre. These include a new main entrance, a fully covered linkway joining the Science Centre and the Omni -Theatre, a Kinetic Garden, and an Annex Building.

Blending the sciences with the art, the Kinetic Garden is Asia's first outdoor interactive garden of science. It comprises 35 interactive sculptures, exhibits and displays set within a pleasant garden environment. Water features in the form of waterfalls, ponds, fountains and water misters provide the entire Garden with a cooling environment for you to enjoy the exhibits.

Apart from the main exhibition galleries, the Omni-Theatre is also one of the central attractions of the Centre. The 5-storey high and 23 metre diameter hemispheric giant screen and sophisticated sound systems promise audiences a thrilling cinematic experience.

The Omni-Theatre also houses an 18-seat Virtual Voyages Simulation Theatre which allows viewers to experience science phenomena visually and physically by means of a 15-minute adventure story.
