With more than a thousand interactive exhibits spanning 14 galleries, Science Centre Singapore is an ideal space to inspire the next generation of Newtons or Einsteins.

Trek to the centre of the earth through a crack in the surface to discover the different layers that lay beneath. Or power an engine just using the heat from your palm!

These are just some of the fun activities that can be found at 20 permanent exhibitions such as the Ecogarden, which showcases a variety of plants, all growing naturally and receiving no special care. Defending Science exhibits the latest in surveillance, flight, armour and radar used in the battlefield, while Quirky illustrates how fun science can be with displays of unique innovations.

Shows and demonstrations are scheduled daily and are designed to make learning exciting. Witness a spectacular Fire Tornado Demonstration in safety, get up close with a giant hissing cockroach on your hand, or gaze into the stars at the observatory.

The Science Centre also boasts two other key attractions. The Omni-Theatre is Singapore’s only IMAX dome theatre, which features a 5-storey high dome screen that immerses you into the action on the screen. Watch saber-toothed and woolly mammoths come to live, or go eye to eye with a dancing bear.

For a taste of winter in our tropical city, be sure to step into the Snow City, Singapore’s first permanent indoor snow centre. In this sub-zero environment, you can whiz down the snow slope on a snow tube, and come face to face with sculptures of extinct animals. While here, catch The Snow Show, a performance on the ice, and discover more about the properties of ice, snow and water.

No matter young or old, nor the degree of passion for the sciences, you’re guaranteed to have fun here while learning something new.
