Immersive Drawing at ArtScience Museum

ArtScience Museum

For the little artists, the ArtScience museum features immersive drawing activities that allow you to get creative with your artwork and have it appear on the screen! This one’s a big hit with the kids, so it might be difficult to get a spot for them to colour their artwork. But don’t worry, there are three different drawing themes available throughout the gallery to ensure every little Picasso gets a chance!

ArtScience Museum: Transport-themed Play Area

ArtScience Museum Singapore

For parents with little bubs, head to Inverted Globe, Giant Connecting Block Town, which features a safe and sizeable play space depicting a transportation network! Watch the little ones have fun moving the blocks around in this interactive installation.

On the other hand, the older kids will be thrilled as they approach an interactive installation – Aerial Climbing through a Flock of Coloured Birds. This interactive installation features colourful, suspended horizontal bars visitors can carefully navigate through. According to the museum’s website, the artwork aims to explore “the aerial dance of swooping, intricately coordinated patterns in the sky, a phenomenon known as a murmuration.”

Be sure to watch for your little racers here, as it can get quite trippy if you consider the combination of factors such as lights, sounds, and other guests rushing through the artwork (yes, I’m speaking from experience)! Do also note that children must be at least 1.20 metres in height to enjoy this installation at ArtScience Museum, and participants should only wear covered shoes.
