ArtScience Museum: Guide To Singapore’s ‘Lotus’ With Aesthetic Exhibits, Workshops & Galleries

Exploring ArtScience Museum in Singapore


Most of us would recognize ArtScience Museum as the iconic lotus-shaped building situated amid Singapore’s skyline. One may not expect from simply looking at it, but the museum is surprisingly large – spanning over 5000m²  with 21 gallery spaces. 

The arts and science may seem like they’re worlds apart, but just as its name suggests, you can learn about both with a trip here.

The architect, Moshe Safdie, was inspired by lotus flowers, which can actually be found at the entrance of the building.

If you’re always endlessly scrolling through your Instagram feed, chances are you’ve come across multiple #aesthetic photos from the museum’s only permanent exhibition: Future World: Where Art Meets Science

The museum even has free Wi-Fi throughout so you can spam your IG stories without worrying about using up all your data.

With its dazzling LED lights and interactive art projections, it’s no wonder that so many choose to pepper their social media feeds with pictures of this spot. 


This immersive and high-tech exhibition is in collaboration with teamLab, who are known for famous exhibitions worldwide.

ArtScience Museum is also no stranger to exciting touring exhibitions, with galleries being updated every few months with something new for us to see. 

Exciting past exhibitions include ‘Disney: Magic of Animation and ‘Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition

Some exhibitions have free virtual tours available as well as public guided tours, all with no added cost. With free seasonal workshops available at the museum, visitors of all ages can enjoy a hands-on and interactive experience here too.

If you’re feeling peckish after a day of exploring, there are plenty of dining options available next door at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Some popular restaurants include Black Tap for their towering milkshakes and Yardbird for their delicious fried chicken.
