Singapore Science Centre

Other than the Jurong Bird Park, another popular tourist destination and landmark in the west of Singapore is the Singapore Science Centre.  It has helped greatly in generating interest in the sciences.  The hands-on exhibits in the Science Centre have proven popular with children and adults alike.

The Science Centre was designed by Raymond Woo and opened in 1977.  Ten years later, the Omni-Theatre was added.  Two separate stamp issues have featured the Science Centre.  The first was issued in conjunction with its opening in 1977 while the second was issued in conjunction with its 10th anniversary.  In recent years, the Science Centre has featured many block-buster exhibitions including one on the Lord of the Rings.
