“Excellent for kids young (and a little older)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

I love this place, my kids love this place, my wife loves this place. It's family fun, interesting facts and a great day out all rolled into one.

We have a 2 year membership to this place, it was relatively inexpensive and the whole family get to go to the Omni Cinema and the main Science centre for an unlimited amount of time for the entire 2 years. It's been very worthwhile.

The Omni Theatre (large indoor dome screen showing IMAX movies) has a new screen since we joined and has improved the experience greatly, there are no visable seems now and you can enjoy the movie without the worry, my kids love it and always ask "are we flying dad" when the films start big swooping shots.

The main Science Centre has a number of long standing shows and exhibits throughout that they do maintain very well, as you can imagine, hundreds of kids a day are hitting buttons, whizzing whizzers and generally utilising things to virtual destruction, so there are times when things are not working 100%, but they soon get to fix them for the next visit.

They have an annex that (for an additional price) you can look at a large exhibit on a particular topic of science and this is normally very good. They change this exhibit every few months, the schedules of this and the film changes on the theatre are published on the webpage.

There is a great fact filled learning water play area, with all kinds of attractions for little ones, remember to take the swim suits and towels, there doesn't seem to be any availability of this in the shop, but, there are suitable changing rooms.

All in all, I'd have to say if you want a bang for buck attraction for the whole family in Singapore then this is it!

“My kids love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

I have been here a number of times, and never seen it all. The kids love it, its there favorite place in Singapore on the weekend. Make sure you see some of the shows which are really good - and bring your swimming gear as the outside water play area is great. Highly recommended for families with kids age 3 to 16.

This is very fun, there is lots of things to do, since Snow CIty is close, if you get bored at Science Centre you can go there!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

Should have new exhibitions and attractions. The attractions are the same when I visited it ten years ago and now.

“Fabulous museum, but not toddler-friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

This is a great science museum for older children, age 7-8 and above. The scientific explanations are excellent and there are a ton of cool exhibits. But very little to keep our 3 and 5 year olds entertained on a rainy morning. Bring a change of clothes - the "water" exploration zone gets more than a little wet.
