Do experience the typhoon theatre. It is a wonderful attraction to experience, but the museum is quite average.

I thought that this museum was reasonably priced at $12 entry (compared to other attractions in Singapore) and was fun and interesting. Lots of information and several interactive displays. The typhoon theatre (an extra $3) was well worth it. It is worth taking the time...More

Must try the typhoon theater, u can pre book or purchase from the entrance at $3. The whole museum will take no more than 1 hour to complete. There is a souvenir shop.
