Situated at the bay front near Marina Bay Sands, ArtScience Museum & Youth Olympic Park are twin tributes to the progress of Singapore on the world stage.

The Youth Olympic Park is a small area, commerating the inaugural Youth Olympic Games held in Singapore. The Youth Olympic Park is filled with pictorials, statues, and several story boards explaining the significance of the event. Generally, it'll only take about 10 minutes to walk around the whole Youth Olympic Park, and admission is free.

The Youth Olympic Park is connected to the ArtScience Museum by the Double Helix Bridge. An example of the science of engineering combined with the art of architecture design, the Double Helix Bridge is a unique visually appealing pedestrian bridge. The Double Helix Bridge is lit by coloured LEDs at night, and looks a lot more beautiful.

Just across from the Double Helix Bridge stands the ArtScience Museum. Shaped to look like a palm, with 10 fingers, the ArtScience Museum also boasts a sustainability feature in the Rain Oculus, which recycles collected rain water into the washrooms.

There is only 3 small permanent galleries at the ArtScience Museum, located on the 4th floor. The Curiosity Gallery challenges the notions of art and science, the Inspiration Gallery features outstanding ideas from history, and the Expression Gallery uses multi-media to showcase the innate creativity of people.

The rest of the galleries in the ArtScience Museum are normally rotating, temporary exhibitions. During my visit, the 2 temporary exhibitions were Harry Potter The Exhibition, and Andy Warhol 15 Mnutes Eternal.

Andy Warhol 15 Mnutes Eternal explores the personality of the man, his work, his ideas and the tools he used. Perfect for those seeking inspiration in art, or those who work with visual mediums.

Harry Potter The Exhibition showcases the collection of props and movie artifacts from all the Harry Potter movies, and is a great experience for fans of the series.

If you're planning a visit, do note that admission to the various exhibitions will cost around SGD $20 - $30, depending on the exhibition itself. The all-access pass option may be more worth it as a whole package. Allocate around 1 to 4 hours for viewing. Also, note that photography isn't allowed in most of the galleries, especially the temporary exhibitions.
