I've put off going to the Arts Science Museum not only because of it's prohibitive entry fee of S$30 for adults & *gasp* $17 for children (to put this in perspective, the fees for the National Museum is $10/5) but because the idea of a museum that unites arts & science does not exactly fill me with excitement.
Right now, there are 3 three reasons to go 1. Van Gogh Alive 2. Dali 3. 20% OCBC card promotion.
You can't miss it, it's located inside the iconic Lotus Bud / Palm structure in front of Marina Bay Sands which apparently collects rain water to be recycled in the restrooms.
Dali is in town
Do you agree ?
The Van Gogh Alive does not actually show any of his paintings per se. Instead, it's a multimedia projection of his paintings within the gallery. The images juxtaposed with one another & seem to take on a life of their own. The best way to enjoy this is to sit back, relax & immerse yourself in the music & the art of Van Gogh. Highly recommended.
The museum is extremely kids friendly. Interactive games like *Spot the difference* or *Re-arrange the picture*. The activity area had paper crafts for us to take home - all related to the current exhibition.
