Within the beautiful Marina Bay Sands stands an architectural wonder. Let us all discover the first ever ArtScience Museum in the world.
Let me introduce you to the awesome perks that you will definitely enjoy when you visit Marina Bay Sands Art and Science Museum this 2016.
Before you step inside the said museum, you won’t be able to stop yourself from falling in love with the out-of-this-world architecture of its building.
This structure is inspired by the delicate-looking lotus flower and may I tell that when it’s lit up during the night time, it definitely does look like one. By the way, it is named as the “Welcoming Hands of Singapore”. It must have been called so since everyone is absolutely welcome to witness how science, art and entertainment had been interwoven into one.
Not only is the building’s structure breathtaking but it has also an ingenious practical use. It’s a catch-basin for rain water; the said water is then recycled to be utilized for every purpose possible in the entire building.
Now that you are done admiring the outside, it’s time to discover what awaits you inside. Step into the world of exceptional works of art showcased to fascinate all your senses.
For the all-in-one Art Lovers:
You don’t have to worry that you will get lost in this huge building because a guided tour awaits every guest in this museum. You would definitely not regret the guided tour especially now as you will also have the chance to indulge into a palate of Contemporary Art Works of emerging artists from Asia.
Let your senses have a feast on various paintings, photographs, sculptures and even digital work of arts which are excellently chosen from hundreds of submissions across Asia.
Prudential Eye Awards spearheaded this Art Exhibition from January up to March this year. Although there are 5 different art categories in this exhibition like painting, photography, sculpting, digital/video production and installation, an overall winner shall be hailed and he/she will take home a USD $30,000.00. He/she will also have the privilege to have a solo exhibition in London.
After your guided tour, why don’t you discover a world like you have never seen before.
For the Science Enthusiasts:
Let us all welcome the birth of the world’s greatest invention: Collider. This is a labor of love of 10,000 men and women who unified with the sole purpose of achieving a scientific feat. Thanks to them, we would be able to witness the rise of new energy particles which have never even been known to mankind.
These particles collide in massive detectors built inside subterranean caverns. Warning: this invention will definitely leave you open-mouthed. If your curiousity is killing you right now and thinking what exactly is this invention that scientists are crazy all about then worry no more for it will be showcased in a new-moving image with a documentary called “Particle Fever” this January.
Well, folks we are not yet done for this museum must have it all. It had not only thought of Art and Science lovers, but they also have a room for music lovers out there. Yes, you’ve heard that right. This is definitely not your old boring museums; the curators also know how to throw a party.

Once a month, you can loosen up and unleash the party animal within you. The museum shows off an alter ego and presents some live performances of well-known artists. You can also sing along and dance to the tune of your heart as you enjoy rhythms and melodies like you have never heard them before.
