Singapore Discovery is the place for play, discover and learn. You can just let your kids run around to discover this huge indoor playground. Last month I brought my nephew and niece from Australia to pay a visit here.
Singapore Discovery Center is like a museum, you get to learn about the past here. It is also like a big classroom, you see students both local and abroad having excursion here too. The time we were there, we met a group of teen school students from Hong Kong.
So Singapore Gallery
There is a short film showing all the unique thing about Singapore. You will enjoy as it is quite funny and true about fellow Singaporean.
Build It Game Centre
You get to play games in the big screen. There are electronic games, booth and many other buttons for kids to step or press on. The kids are wearing headsets and microphones to combat with the enemies.
Many interactive exhibits for kids to explore, stir up their imagination and curiosity.
On Location Reporter
If you wanted to see how you look like on TV, try the on location reporter. It allow you to choose from 20 stories on Singapore’s significant moments and report it on TV. You also get to see the replay video of yourself. My nephew did a very good job in reporting the TV hot news!
Movies is included when you enter Singapore Discovery Centre. This is Singapore’s largest flat-screen theatre featuring 2D and 3D giant screen movies. Check the timetable for the movies and plan your tour accordingly.
Over here the theme get changed frequently. There is a staff on duty who handed us the questionnaire and asked us to fill in the correct answer. Kids can search the answer from the display in this exhibition. My nephew and niece were running around for 20 mins to search for the answer. Very enthusiastic.
Once you have done with the questionnaire, hand back to the staff and a little present will be given to you.
Bus Tour Ride
There is also bus tour ride that bring you to SAFTI Military Institute where army officers are having their training and learning place. There is a tour guide in the bus who will explain you throughout the whole bus ride. Bus ride is about 30 mins.
Boat Rides – There are boat rides available at the man-made lake outside the Discovery Centre but do note only available on Public Holiday and weekends only.
Admission Fees – Free for Singaporean & PR. Foreigners has to pay and there are various combo for you to choose from.

I am glad to have brought my nephew and niece from overseas to pay a visit at the Singapore Discovery Centre. They get to run around in this huge indoor 2 storey playground. There are galleries and theatre rooms for them to see, to learn and to explore. Also many interactive exhibits, machines with buttons for them to touch and press on.
If you want to avoid the heat and something indoor for kids, this is the place as the whole place is air-condition. You can spend half a day.
