CONNECT WITH ARTSCIENCE MUSEUM
The world’s first ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands is known as the museum that celebrates creativity, the processes at the heart of art and science, and their role in shaping society.
The Museum seeks to understand what drives creative people, how they acquire and use their skills, and how the world around us is changed because of it. ArtScience Museum presents exhibitions and programmes to deliver these stories using a combination of beautiful design, intriguing content and intellectual discussion, in order to inspire the creativity in us all.
Featuring 21 gallery spaces totalling 50,000 square feet, the boldly iconic ArtScience Museum is also the premier venue for major international touring exhibitions from the most-renowned collections in the world. Since it opened in 2011, ArtScience Museum has been home to some of the best-attended exhibitions in Singapore, including “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition”, “Harry Potter: The Exhibition”, “Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal”; “Dali: Mind of a Genius” and “The Art of the Brick.
ArtScience: A Journey Through Creativity
The permanent exhibition, ArtScience: A Journey Through Creativity, showcases the power of creativity as it is manifested in the world of ArtScience. By demonstrating how creative minds meld the disciplines of art and science to make objects that transform our world, it takes visitors on a journey inside the creative process across three unique spaces: Curiosity, Inspiration and Expression.
Curiosity is an arrival gallery that encourages guests to ponder the very nature of how we define art and science, what it means to us, and how it influences our world.
Inspiration is an interactive gallery that focuses on great ideas that are the products of the union of Art and Science. These manifestations serve as inspiration for us to create our own work of ArtScience.
Expression is a dynamic multi-media gallery providing an emotional, impassioned demonstration of the power of human beings to harness inspiration and realise ideas that change the way we experience the world.
Iconic Architecture: A Welcome to the World
An iconic presence along the Marina Bay waterfront, ArtScience Museum is a living, breathing embodiment of the ArtScience theme.
Designed by renowned architect Moshie Safdie, the lotus-inspired ArtScience Museum has been called “The Welcoming Hand of Singapore” by Mr Sheldon Adelson, the visionary chairman of Las Vegas Corp.
The building form is made up of 10 "fingers" anchored by a unique round base in the middle. The design of each finger reveals different gallery spaces featuring skylights at the "fingertips" that illuminate the dramatically curved interior walls.
The Museum's roof channels rainwater through the central atrium of the building creating a 35-meter water drop into a small, reflecting pool. The rainwater is then recycled for use in the building.
Material such as Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP), typically used in high-performance racing yachts, which has never been used in a project in Singapore, was used for the construction of this architectural wonder.
