Marina Bay

  • LeVel33, located on the 57th floor in the Marina Bay Financial Centre, is the world’s highest, urban microbrewery. The brewery has 12 tanks and 2 copper kettles. Order a flight of 5 to try the year round craft beers. A new seasonal beer is available every quarter.

  • When the elevator doors open on the 33rd floor, visitors are greeted with a view of the copper brewing kettles.

Marina Bay Sands ArtScience Museum

  • The ArtScience Museum is located in the giant lotus flower next to Marina Bay Sands. During the day the flower is closed to catch rain water, creating a waterfall in the evening surrounding the museum. There are 3 interchanging exhibits at the museum. Future World, where art meets science, is a Japanese collection intertwining art and technology featuring interactive labs. There are 5 themes to explore: nature, town, sanctuary, park, and space.  

Traveling Gingerbread Note: Guests of Marina Bay Sands can sign up to become a Marina Bay Sands rewards member. It only takes a few minutes to sign up. As a member, the cost for both of us to visit 1 exhibit was S$19 instead of the advertised S$32 per person.

  • “There’s only one difference between art and science. In science, the universe is in control, in art, you are.” – Harry Kroto, Nobel Prize in Chemistry
  • “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.” – Albert Einstein Physicist

Nature

  • Transcending Boundaries, (pictured left) is a collection of 6 different art creations. The art isn’t restricted to a frame as the water flows onto the floor.

Town

  • Sketch Town is created by visitors. After coloring a blank building template (not to the best of our abilities), we scan our creation near the Sketch town wall, watch as our building enters the town, and is dropped into the water. Buildings, cars, spaceships, and helicopters are on the move in this crowded interactive art town.
  • Little people living in the table continue their daily life until objects are introduced. Watch the people react as their paths are interrupted in A Table Where Little People Live.  

Sanctuary

  • Cherry blossoms bloom and die as the seasons change in the Impermanent Life exhibit. The life cycle of the flowers symbolize light and dark or good and bad, nothing lasts forever in life.

Park

  • Touching one of the giant light up balls changes its sound and color. A symphony of sound and color is created as the balls respond to the changes around them in Light Ball Orchestra

  • Similar to Sketch Town, color, scan, and watch people or animals come to life in Sketch People and Animals.

Space

  • More than 170,000 LED lights were used to recreate stars moving through space in Crystal Universe. The stars, planets, and galaxies are directed by visitors’ smartphones.

Gardens by the Bay

Author: The Traveling Gingerbread

My husband, Mitch, and I have been traveling together over 6 years. Living and working full-time in Pittsburgh, PA, we travel as much as our vacation days and finances allow. We cram each adventure with activities, tours,  and experiences to maximize our time. We always try to visit to a local brewery and can't walk by an Irish pub without stopping in for a pint of Guinness. CREATION OF THE TRAVELING GINGERBREAD: In Tokyo, we smiled every time we saw someone talking on their large, animated phone case. We had to buy one. Having an obsolete IPhone 5, the selection was limited. We purchased a gingerbread off a neglected rack in Shinjuku, Tokyo and The Traveling Gingerbread was born. You can purchase your own gingerbread friend here! The Traveling Gingerbread is an entertaining account of our travels, fun facts, and tips we learned along the way.
