The world's first ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands is the Museum of Creativity, where the creative processes at the heart of art and science and their role in shaping society are explored. Featuring 21 gallery spaces the boldly iconic lotus-inspired ArtScience Museum boasts a constantly changing retinue of touring exhibits, which have included Dali: Mind of a Genius and Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal.

The ArtScience Museum itself is an architectural masterpiece. The breathtaking structure designed by Israeli-born architect Moshe Safdie not only is an artistic inspiration, but it also promotes environmental sustainability. Safdie's architecture exemplifies the museum's goal to unite art and science by providing an aesthetically pleasing structure that utilizes cutting-edge construction and design technologies.

The permanent exhibition known as the ArtScience Gallery, comprising of three sections: Curiosity, Inspiration, and Expression. As an introduction to this journey, the first gallery, "Curiosity," asks visitors to question their surroundings. Spectators start by stepping onto a floating staircase that ascends into the gallery. Along the sides of the staircase are banners posing questions about art and science. The hope is to get visitors to reflect on the original nature of art and science and see how these two seemingly separate disciplines in fact have affected our world synergistically in many positive ways.

The second step in the journey is "Inspiration," a gallery focused on six pivotal works of art and science innovation. These works were selected to illustrate how art and science working in concert have affected humanity, sociology and technology across various cultures and centuries. The inventions on display include a replica of Leonardo's Flying Machine, an airborne paper Kongming lantern, a high-tech robotic fish, an architectural design model of the ArtScience Museum, a molecular model of buckminsterfullerene, and an ancient Chinese scroll.

The last step in the journey takes visitors to the tallest finger of the museum and into the "Expression" gallery. This gallery consists of a dynamic multimedia theater featuring a video presentation highlighting various accomplishments in art and science throughout history.
