More on Science Centre


There are two regular bird shows organised at the Jurong Bird Park, organised twice a day.

The Science Centre, Singapore was carved out of the National Museum of Singapore in 1969, aimed at promoting scientific education in the community through a leisurely and entertaining manner, thus increasing the appreciation in the community for the achievements of science. Through its various exhibitions, the Science centre provides information on the various disciplines in the field of science seen in everyday life, emphasising the importance of hands-on exploration over the formal text-based approach.

The Observatory at the Science Centre is quite special among those of the world as it is one of the few observatories located next to the equator. This position allows it to observe both northern and southern celestial hemispheres. Astronomy lessons and public talks are held at this facility. Stargazing sessions are open to the public on Friday nights.

Singapore's first and only IMAX dome theatre, the Omni-Theatre, was established in the Science Centre premises in 1987. It is one of the brightest 8K digital planetarium system in the world, and Southeast Asia's largest seamless dome screen. The Science Centre Singapore showcases edutainment movies relating to space, nature, animals, marine life, natural disasters and related scientific fields at this magnificent theatre. The omniplanetarium shows help tourists explore various aspects of space like zodiacal constellations, variable stars, exoplanets, Nebulae, the Milky Way Galaxy and so on in a fine level of detail.

Singapore's first permanent indoor snow centre, the Snow City was established within the Science Centre premises in 2000, aimed at introducing the concepts of snow and the ecosystems of sub-zero climates in an entertaining way to the public. Along with an abundance of real snow, visitors will also enjoy the three-storey high, 60-metre-long snow slope and the Ice Gallery, filled with realistic sculptures of prehistoric creatures like Styracosaurus, T-rex and other extinct species. Snow professionals are positioned throughout the vicinity to educate the public on snow and life in this freezing climate.
