The visiting exhibits are the highlight

Designed by Moshie Safdie, the unmissable design resembles two hands held palms upwards with the fingers jutting towards the sky. Each fingertip has a skylight which is used to illuminate the interior.
Within the museum there are 21 gallery spaces which total 50,000 square feet of display space, and while we found the permanent exhibits here to be somewhat underwhelming (we thought we missed something), the visiting exhibits make the ArtScience Museum worth its hefty admission fee.
Past exhibits have attracted world-class presentations about Genghis Khan, treasures from a sunken ship, the works of surrealist Salvador Dali and an impressive Dinosaur exhibition. Exhibitions rotate so be sure to check their website to see what’s on before you visit.
Admissions vary depending on the exhibit - upon our most recent visit, they ranged from $13 to $22. Admission rates are double priced, with cheaper rates for Singaporean citizens.
