We went into the Future World exhibition as the description made it sound very appealing. First thing we tried to sit and watch a serious art v science display in a semi-circular room, but feral kids were running around uncontrolled which made it impossible to watch. We then headed for another room and came across an unexpected slide down into the next exhibition, but had to wait until unaccompanied kids pushed their way through and threw themselves down it. The attendant tried to stop them but the parents were in the other room furiously videoing their little darlings.
The rest of that room was based on drawing and colouring and clearly designed for children.
The last room is an impressive hanging light room which would have been great except that people were just not moving through until they had taken a hundred selfies showing their best trout-pouts. Again the attendant tried his best to move people through but most seemed more intent on photographing it than actually enjoying the experience.
I applaud the efforts of the artists to present interesting and entertaining displays, but this is the age of entitlement and selfish self-indulgence, so their creations need to reflect the problems that this brings.

We went for the five year old, but we had a ball. It was the best children's museum we've ever experienced, and we've been to a lot of them in different cities. The whole thing was interactive, with things to do that I've never seen before. Draw a picture, scan it, and it appears on the wall as a moving object. You touch it, and it does different things. Really cool. Join the museum online to get 2 tickets for the price of one. Nice senior discount too.

This museum informs, educates and delights its visitors.
We were lucky to have seen this exhibition called "Future World - where arts meets science". I have never seen such a delightful use of technology and visitor interaction like this before.

This one is definitely a must watch for people of all age groups.

Interesting museum, future world and a visiting exhibit from the natural history museum in London were here when we went. There was a video playing upstairs. It is hard to see how the spaces available in the lotus petal would be very usable.

The building architecture is different (Lotus shaped). The art and science museum is different theme. It has around 4-5 big rooms. There are art work (Painting). It is linked to some scientific themes. Will be interesting for those who love art and painting. Yo may need to plan for about 1-2 hours.
