Look out for the White Rabbit! Then, follow him down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, a new exhibition at Artscience Museum that opens on 13 April 2019. The interactive and whimsical exhibition is based on Lewis Carroll's beloved book series “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There”.

Red Dot Island is the first stop of Wonderland's global tour. Developed by Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), Wonderland aims to enchant readers and audiences with immersive environments consisting of theatrical sets, stunning props and audiovisual works.

Alice and her adventures in Wonderland has inspired countless movies, comics, games since 1865, and has also become a pop culture icon through the ages. The Wonderland exhibition shows how she has been interpreted and adapted through the centuries, by pulling together an amazing range of original behind-the-scenes material that includes over 300 artefacts and objects, like original 19th century manuscripts, first edition books, imaginative drawings, fantastical costumes, films and so much more.

In addition, Wonderland will also show the technological advances and progress with animation, puppetry and special effects from the era during the first Alice movie adaptation by Cecil M Hepworth in 1903 to the recent TV shows and films produced and screened in the 21st century.

Here is a brief run down of what visitors can expect in the upcoming Wonderland exhibit.

Starting from Lewis Carroll's drawing room, visitors will be given their own Lost Map of Wonderland to use as a guide in exploring the area. But first of all, you have to choose to be one of the four characters – the White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, the Queen or the Mad Hatter - which will set you on a path consisting of secret doorways, winding corridors, and interactive props that beg to be touched and fiddled with.

The journey continues through the Hallway of Doors, to the Pool of Tears, the Looking Glass House and then, to the Queen's Croquet Ground, where you can become one of those on screen taking part in a croquet game.

Most wondrous of all is the immersive centrepiece of the exhibit - the Mad Hatter's Tea Party! Sit down and be one of the kooky guests at a table served with giant tea cups, surrounded by a digitally projected dreamscape.

Leave the adult world of logic behind when you step into topsy-turvy Wonderland, as things get curiouser and curiouser, and where it is OK if you think you have spotted a glimpse of the Cheshire cat's mysterious grin from the corner of your eye.

ArtScience Museum's Marvel Studios: 10 Years of Heroes Exhibition Needs More Punch


The Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes exhibition, which celebrates the 19 Marvel superhero movies in the last 10 years, opened to the public at ArtScience Museum on 9 June 2018. From now till 30 September, fans will be able to relive their favourite Marvel superhero movie moments at the show.

The project is part of a three-year collaboration between Singapore Tourism Board and The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia. For the exhibition, Taiwan-based toy company Beast Kingdom worked with Walt Disney for the concept and displays.



Within the exhibit hall, there are 10 different galleries featuring places from the movies - for example, Stark Industries, Aasgard, and Wakanda. Each of these areas have life-sized statues, static displays, or interactive areas for fans to get their superhero fix.

Red Dot Diva was at the special preview for bloggers to take in the signs and sounds of the exhibition, and here are some of the things you can expect.
