Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck Admission Ticket

152 reviews
A Singapore landmark, the Marina Bay Sands Skypark hangs poised atop the three towers of the waterfront Marina Bay Sands complex—and offers some of the city’s best views. Gain entry to the Observation Deck on the 57th floor and admire Supertree Grove, Gardens by the Bay, and so much more. Your ticket includes an audio guide, but do be aware that the Infinity Pool is reserved for hotel guests.

Overall a great place to go, especially if you want to know the history of Singapore. As foreigners, S$15 for adults and S$10 for students.

Visited for the exhibition on Pandemic and Truly Home. A good experience to walk through the short but rich history of Singapore. Love the effort to include real life accounts and engaging locals to interviews for a perspective from their point of view. How people in different walks of life came through the tumultuous times of Singapore's past and most recently the Covid-19 pandemic. Manage to see some real artefacts from the history, part of my growing up years and things that we won't ever go back to again. Can only reminiscence..

Really one of the best museums in singapore due to the extensive research and collections for Singaporeans to connect with our short but rich history. Helps us understand lee kuan yew and the earlier years in Singapore.

It's been almost two decades since I visited the National Museum. I usually enjoy visiting museums but have had this (unfair) perception that this museum's displays are dull. A recent visit helped to dispel that feeling and made me see it in a brand new light. Housed in a grand mansion of a building that dates back to the 1840s, it underwent a long period of renovation before reopening in 2006. Unsurprisingly, its main exhibit is the history of Singapore. Using a variety of media, from physical mock-ups to dioramas to multimedia, visitors get to trace the island from its first historical mention in the 14th century, through its founding as a trading port by the East India Company on the early 19th century, to becoming a Straits Settlement and British colony over the next hundred or so years. The story then moves towards the Japanese occupation during the second world war, independence from Britain, and finally to its development as a sovereign nation. I especially enjoyed the displays pertaining to the development of police force as well as the effects of opium smoking. All this took me slightly over two hours to get through at a fairly lesiurely pace. I also walked through a temporary visually-stunning digital exhibition titled Story of the Forest which made clever use of the building's rotunda. And December being Children's Month at the museum, loads of kids were in attendance, mainly to have their photos taken next to the numerous Doraemon displays.
