A modern day ‘edutainment’ centre that showcases the past, present and future of Singapore, the Discovery Centre is a hands-on, minds-on experience ideal for older kiddos. Test your knowledge of Singapore at the Harmony Circle (kids will be quizzed, game show style) and learn traditional dance moves at the Digital Dance Studio. The centre aims to be touch-and-feel so it is perfect for inquisitive children who enjoy finding out the why behind how things are. We admit the location is not fantastic (it can be a bit tricky to get a taxi back) but its smaller size (you’ll be able to get around in an hour or two) and outdoor Water Park make for an interesting mini-adventure with the fam.
Hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 9am – 6pm. Closed Mondays (except during school holidays and public holidays)
Admission: Standard admission: adults $10, children 3-12 years $6.
How to get there: Exit at Joo Koon MRT station and make the 5-minute walk. Travelling by car or taxi will get you there more easily (Take exit 40 of the PIE or exit 20 of the AYE).
