At this "museum", you get up close and personal/interactive with design in many forms. Technology, furniture, lighting, architecture: you name it! This is a somewhat small place, but super interesting, and extremely well done. This was our favorite thing which we did in Singapore.

Cheap to get in but that's how it should be as it's only small, just one large room with alcoves. Interesting watch concepts but a lot of strange or strangely lauded items.
