Very nice centre with themed areas for kids or adults to discover science through a less academic approach. Been there with 5yrs and 2yrs kids : not appropriate though for this age range. As from 7yrs would be ideal. When ending, cross the road to opposite mall to be sure catch a taxi or bus.

We watched a digital movie, Back to the Moon for Good during the SG50 period.

It was exceptional. Even better than we expected. Even though my kids didn't understand part of it, the 3D experience was so real that we felt as if we were floating in a space craft on the moon and spinning around the earth.
When we got out of the theatre, we were very dizzy.

The introduction before the movie by the facilitator was so interesting with 3D visuals.

Strongly recommended for families. However, if you are a victim of dizziness and cannot take it, don't go for it. You will not regret buying the tickets even though it seems expensive. "Back to the Moon for Good" might be a good choice that is worth the money as the floating, spinning and flying effect is worth the feel!

Digital movies would be better than IMAX in my opinion.

An exceptional 3D experience in the Omni-Theatre!

We booked tickets for the Omni theatre at the same time as admission tickets to the Science centre. We were not certain what we were going to see because the Science centre staff had very little or no information about the shows. When we purchased the tickets, we had assigned seats and since we purchased them early, we had good seats. When we arrived at the theatre, we were told it was now free seating. We were then unable to sit anywhere near our "assigned" seats and were forced down low and to the side since the theatre was almost full. We watched "Cosmic Surfing" which was pretty good however; the narration was terrible. The person sounded as if they were reading from a very poorly written script which made it very difficult to follow what he was saying. It would have been better if it was recorded because even his attempts to make it interactive were cumbersome, to say the least.

They say its first large dome screen and once you enter in the done you understand why does it say large dome. its fantastic experience to see a movie in it but they should play long movies rather than small docs. Its worth the money as the view will make you feel as if you are in the movie. move you neck where ever you want to and you will still have a view of screen.
