Science Centre Singapore: Mirror Maze Exhibits, Kid Workshops and Family Activities

Science Centre Singapore

Most 90s kids would remember going “woahhh!” at the awe-inspiring musical Tesla Coil and Fire Tornado exhibition at the Science Centre. While the centre has undergone some changes in the past years, they’ve kept iconic exhibits that’ll take you back to your last school excursion and added new ones to keep both you and your young ones excited.

For first-timers and repeat visitors alike, here are some of the things that you can look forward to the next time you head down to Science Centre Singapore.

Interactive exhibitions

Get lost in a labyrinth of mirrors

Step inside Asia’s largest mirror maze –  Professor Crackitt’s Light Fantastic Mirror Maze – and get lost in all the reflections around you. Be careful not to rush, else you’ll end up walking straight into one of the 105 mirrors in the chamber! 

For other interactive exhibitions, you can head down over to The Mind’s Eye exhibition – where there’ll be motion-based exhibits for you to play around with. Some of the more iconic ones include the Giant Chair – where you can watch your friend magically become smaller than you from behind the camera.
