The arts science museum at Marina Bay is a place where art meets science. This lotus-inspired building spans an area of about 50,000 sq.mts and features 21 gallery spaces. For the past decade, the museum is famous for hosting grand exhibitions of artworks made by classic artists like Leonardo Da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh. The events hosted by the museum explore various themes of the modern world such as space, pop culture, sustainability, culture and the natural world. They also host scientific, educational exhibitions on subjects such as Paleontology, Marine Biology and Cosmology. The ever-changing themes and displays at the museum keep it from becoming monotonous, offering visitors a plethora of varied information with every visit.
The brain behind this marvellous architecture is Moshie Safdie. The architectural style of the art science museum is a perfect embodiment of what its name - Art and Science. The lotus-inspired building is made of 10 extended "fingers" that are supposed to be petals with a unique circular base that holds them together, portraying a structure similar to that of a concrete lotus flower. Each of the fingers features different gallery spaces, and hosts skylights at the fingertips, illuminating the interior curved dramatically. Not just this, the museum is designed in an eco-friendly way where the roof channels rainwater from the atrium, at the centre of the building, to a small reflective pool which contributes in making this place an architectural wonder.
The museum runs exhibitions and tours throughout the year. The three themes of permanent exhibits of the art-science gallery are Curiosity, Inspiration and Expression.
'A Journey Through Creativity' is one of their permanent exhibitions. This place is sure to transport you back to the prehistoric, Precambrian, Jurassic period and give you an experience of the natural environment of dinosaurs and their contemporary species. With remarkable specimens and graphic reconstruction of extinct species, the visitors will leave with knowledge and fascination of dinosaurs they wouldn't have had elsewhere.
Some of the other exhibitions worth mentioning are:
Some of the tours at the beginning of the year are Dinosaurs: Dawn to extinction, Traveling the Silk Road: Ancient Pathway to the Modern World, Genghis Khan-The Exhibition, Shipwrecked: Tang treasures and monsoon winds, Van Gogh Alive-The exhibition, and Mummy: Secret of the tomb. Other exhibitions include Harry Potter: The Exhibition, Titanic: The artefact exhibition and 50 greatest photographs of the National Geographic.
