Singapore Science Centre

Some of the exhibits in the Singapore Science Centre, a permanent exhibition space dedicated to science and technology.
The Kinetics Garden has a variety of hands on exhibits illustrating kinetic principles.

Waterworks, a play zone.
The atrium is like a central pod which leads you to the different zones, with interactive hands on exhibits that explain scientific principles.

An animated dinosaur greets visitors at the entrance and provides a photo opportunity.


Sea Monsters billboard. Sea Monsters is a one of three movies screened at the Omnitheatre, one of the highlights of your visit. The 360 degrees screen envelopes your senses with crystal clear images using IMAX technology. The movie is a prehistoric adventure immersing you in a mysterious ocean world and introduces you to amazing paleontological digs around the globe to uncover the science behind the unexplored marine world of the “other dinosaurs”.

An exhibition on the science and art of Leonardo da Vinci, the Renaissance artist who was also interested in the sciences. His studies of human anatomy, engineering, mathematics etc is documented. His memorable works of genius were his paintings of Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, amongst others. Above shows Leonardo's drawing of the Vitruvian Man. Photography isn't allowed inside so I couldn't show more. This travelling exhibition ends 16 August 2009.
