ArtScience Museum

About ArtScience
The world’s first ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands is the Museum of Creativity, where the creative processes at the heart of art and science and their role in shaping society are explored. With a form reminiscent of the lotus flower, ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands has been called “The Welcoming Hand of Singapore”. Designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie, the iconic ArtScience Museum hosts blockbuster international exhibits as well as permanent exhibits on three floors of gallery space across 6,000 square metres. The roof of ArtScience Museum allows rainwater to be harvested and channelled down through the centre of the structure to the reflecting pond at the lowest level of the building. Rainwater is recycled and redirected through the water feature to create a continuous cylindrical waterfall. The rainwater is also recycled for use in the museum’s bathrooms as part of Singapore’s Green Mark program. Surrounded by a 4,000 square metre lily pond reflecting pool, ArtScience Museum floats over a dynamic new urban terrace with commanding views of Singapore and Marina Bay Sands.
