ArtScience Museum is a museum located within the integrated resort of Marina Bay Sands in the Downtown Core of the Central Area in Singapore. Opened on 17 February 2011 by Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, it is the world’s first ArtScience museum.
Although it has a permanent exhibition, ArtScience Gallery, the ArtScience Museum mainly hosts touring exhibitions curated by other museums.The ArtScience Museum has 21 gallery spaces with a total area of 50,000 square feet (6,000 square meters).Rainwater is harvested and channelled down the centre of the building, flowing through its bowl-shaped roof into a reflecting pond at the lowest level of the building. The rainwater is then recycled for use in the building’s restrooms.The permanent exhibition, the ArtScience Gallery, consists of three galleries – Curiosity, Inspiration, Expression.
The ArtScience Museum promises to feature 21 gallery spaces equating to 50,000 square feet (6,000 square meters) which will display exhibits from combined art/science, media/technology, as well as design/architecture motifs.
Permanent exhibits include objects indicative of the accomplishments of both the arts and the sciences through the ages, along the lines of Leonardo da Vinci’s Flying Machine, a Kongming Lantern, and a high-tech robotic fish. The museum opened with an exhibition of a collection of the Belitung shipwreck cargo, and Tang dynasty treasures that were discovered and carefully preserved by Tilman Walterfang of Seabed Explorations NZ Ltd.
Fascinating as well as inviting – that’s how most people describe the magnificent ArtScience Museum of Singapore. The ArtScience Museum, bearing a unique lotus-shaped design, was built as a symbol of welcome for tourists from all over the world. The ArtScience Museum is the prime hub for international touring exhibitions from the most famous collections in the world. Perhaps the most spectacular sight is the waterfall that is created by the innovative roof of the museum. Rainwater is channeled through the central atrium of the building – thus creating the breathtaking sight of a waterfall.
