Family Fun at the ArtScience Museum!

 If you’ve yet to visit the crown jewel of the Marina Bay Sands complex, the stunning ArtScience Museum, why not take a trip down this June?

In the month of June, visitors to the ArtScience Museum can now enjoy a series of complimentary activities revolving around the three traveling exhibitions—Van Gogh Alive – The exhibition, Dali: Mind of a Genius – The exhibition, and Shipwrecked: Tang Treasures and Monsoon Winds.

Activities planned are wide and varied—ranging from skateboarding performances within the gallery, ceramics workshops, music performances and more!

 

For young children and their families

Programmes suitable for kids of all ages at the ArtScience Museum include Baking Time! where participants create “shrinky dinks”, shrinkable plastic sheets that can be made into key chains and other trinkets. There’s also the Paint like Van Gogh workshop where kids will receive tips on reproducing their own copies of the master’s work.

Other craft-creating workshops include a ceramics workshop, as well as a surrealistic Genius Tape Sculpture workshop. Round up the experience with a Tang Ensemble performance, where kids get to try the various classical Chinese music instruments afterwards.

 

For older children, teenagers and adults

Ever seen a skateboarding performance within an art gallery? Neither have we. Don’t miss Mark Ong’s thrilling performance within the gallery that houses Van Gogh Alive – The exhibition, as the artist who’s also quite the skateboarder skates amidst the artistically choreographed musical and visual sequence of the exhibition.

Of noteworthy mention for history and art buffs is that the Museum will be screening Dali Dimension: Decoding the Mind of a Genius, the award-winning film that retraces Dali’s obsession with science which lasted his whole life. This is screened in conjunction with the recently launched, Dali: Mind of a Genius – The exhibition.

 

The ArtScience Museum is at the Marina Bay Sands. Admission is $30 for adults and $17 for children (2-12 years). Families of 4 enjoy a special admission price of $80.
