What a fun way to spend an evening! Linda was vivacious, fun and engaging. Loved listening to her talk about Peranakan culture and life in Singapore. A novel and interactive way to engage with a museum full of artifacts each with its own story to tell. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this tour and came away with a greater appreciation for Singaporean culture.
It was an insightful experience and love the musical boxes. We learnt a little about the unknown history of Singapore about clock and musical box making. The food was alright and it was just right to have lunch after the tour. too bad we did not get a chance to play our entrance ticket, i suppose it was a music piece.
First time visiting Arts and Science Museum in Singapore. Amazing date place and fun with the different activities for both kids and adults! Might not be suitable for the elderly. But overall, a nice family place to go or even just for a couple. Would go back again especially on weekdays when crowd is not too bad.
Today was a fun excursion at ArtScience museum. I went to the videogames exhibition. I know what the science people are trying to tell me. They tell me my dream is working that my sound capabilities work and I'm able to follow thru. If this discovery is what I want I will follow thru the instructions because it is exciting. Cool. I left the place knowing my idea changed the world!
ArtScience museum in Singapore is one of the coolest place to be in. I think I enjoy the exhibitions there. Worth the visit.
It’s was such a fun experience with Linda and the group. Linda shared interesting information about the Peranakans through an insightful walk along Joo Chiat. The museum was really quite an experience that I shall not spoil for you. Do give it a try if you are looking for something different to do in Singapore! Strongly recommended and please go with a friend!
