Last weekend we went to Marina Bay area. With the new Downtown line mrt, it was much easier and faster to go there. Usually, the trip would take almost one hour by bus, but now it would take less than 20 minutes.
We took the mrt from Beauty World straight to Bayfront. Since it was only around 10 in the morning, we had traditional kaya toast and soft boiled eggs breakfast at the foodcourt in The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. We then walked around in the mall a bit.
After that, Carla and Renan wanted to play outside in front of the water lily pond next to ArtScience museum.
Carla took a beautiful picture of a water lily. No edit and no filter! 😉
We actually didn’t plan to go to ArtScience museum, but we decided to see if there was any interesting exhibition there.
There was an exhibition that sounded interesting: Future World. So we bought the tickets and went in.
It was indeed interesting and fun!
There are four themes in the exhibition…. Nature, Town, Park and Space.
We started in Nature. We enjoyed the four interactive installations.
The fun started in Town. Carla and Renan especially enjoyed A Table Where Little People Live and Sketch Town.
A Table Where Little People Live is a miniature community which comes to live as visitors play with its inhabitants. The little people would walk quietly in line when undisturbed, but once you block their path, they would jump and climb on top of each other. The more you interact with them, the crazier they become! You can also grow and cook food for them, make rain, and other things.
In Sketch Town, virtual towns are built and populated with drawings by visitors. Carla and Renan were so excited to watch their rocket and car going around the towns.
Park is where you can get active. Carla and Renan couldn’t stop running, jumping and rolling around in Light Ball Orchestra.
They also had fun creating hopscotch patterns in Create! Hopscotch for Geniuses.
The last theme is Space. We walked through Crystal Universe, a beautiful light installation. Carla and Renan found that they could change the colours and create new patterns for the installation.
All and all, we really enjoyed Future World. It’s a permanent exhibition at the ArtScience Museum and it’s here to stay for at least the next three years. The interactive nature of this exhibition makes it a great option for families with young children.
