Science Centre Visit 2017

Our last trip to the National Science Centre was already 3 years ago.  It had been closed for renovation for ages, just reopened (with free entrance to boot for 2017) so off we went. :)

Hmm while the building definitely looks better, the exhibits weren't part of the refurbishment.  Quite a lot aren't working.  Lighting is generally too dim to read the signs properly too.  Compared to the one in Singapore where science is the focus, this one seems targeted for young kids to press buttons, turn levers, move things, touch this and that.  Oh well, since young kids are what we do have...

What happens if I put my hand on this...

Wow let me connect the dots

Row row row

Now for some mining on this mine train

Say cheese! (Don't get a headache now)

Heh actually the kids loved it.


Some booths were manned, which was nice.

So I tap the tuning fork and hold the ball against it? OK

Outdoors had more fun stuff.

The access was really fun - a combination of climbing, sliding, rope bridges and whatnot for quite a distance.

Up up

The water play area wasn't open.  It was a super hot day so I was rather glad of that.  We went to one area for butterflies and a few other animals.  Overall, still a great place to entertain young kids.

Off for lunch at The Ship.

Yes, the chocolate ice-cream for me

A good day out indeed!
