Inside the ArtScience Museum

ArtScience Museum has been called 
"The Welcoming Hand of Singapore" 
by Mr. Sheldon Adelson

The design of ArtScience Museum is inspired by a lotus flower
The ArtScience Museum features 21 gallery spaces
totaling 50,000 square ft of exhibition area.
A total of ten "fingers", each a gallery space.
The tallest "finger" standing 60 meters above ground.
Surrounded by a 40,000 square foot lily pond reflecting pool.
The dramatically-curved roof collects and channels rainwater ..

through the central atrium of the building, 
down a 35 meter tail water drop, 

and into a renewable water supply for the restrooms..
Hours of Operation : 10.00am to 10.00pm daily
Last admission at 9.00pm.
