Visit to Marina Barrage and Sustainable Gallery
The Marina Barrage plays an important part in helping to alleviate flooding in some of the lower lying areas of the island. During periods of heavy rain, a series of nine crest gates will be opened to release excess storm water into the sea when the tide is low. When the tide is high, seven giant pumps that are capable of pumping one Olympic-sized swimming pool per minute whirr into action, draining water into the sea.
The facility is also a showcase for Singapore’s push to be a greener country. The Solar Park, for instance, features one of the largest collections of solar panels in Singapore, with over 400 panels providing electricity needed for lighting at the barrage during the day.
To find out more about the country’s efforts to go green, head to the Sustainable Singapore Gallery at the barrage’s ground floor. This educational space illustrates environmental and water issues through interactive multi-media displays, exhibits and games .

Visit Art Science Museum (include admission to ONE exhibition)
Art Science Museum is an iconic cultural landmark in Singapore that explores where art, science, culture and technology come together to form new ideas.
It housed 21 gallery spaces with a total area of 50,000 square feet (6,000 square meters).
Rainwater is harvested and channeled down the centre of the building, flowing through its bowl-shaped roof into a reflecting pond at the lowest level of the building. The rainwater is then recycled for use in the building's restrooms.
Immerse yourself in a world of art, science, magic and metaphor through a collection of digital interactive installation.
This permanent exhibition is created in collaboration with team Lab, a renowned interdisciplinary art collective.
