ArtScience Museum: The Deep

A while back, Jhon and I visited Singapore's ArtScience Museum for The Deep exhibition. I have been wanted to visit it ever since it was announced. Since I was young, I have always been greatly interested in deep sea creatures. I even had made a school report and presentation about it.

Unfortunately, as you are reading this, the exhibition has long ended

 “More men have walked on the moon than have dived to the deepest part of our oceans.” – Dr. Cindy Lee Van Dover

 "The deep sea is Earth’s largest reservoir of life but has remained largely uncharted by Man, with only 10 percent of the seafloor mapped so far. The Deep reveals the mysteries lurking in the deep through the display of perfectly preserved and extremely rare animals in crystalline details, accompanied by mesmeric images of captivating sea fauna and ethereal bioluminescent creatures, some photographed for the very first time. The Deep brings together the largest collection of deep-sea creatures ever displayed in South East Asia. Providing a unique opportunity to encounter the reality of the deep first-hand and to raise public awareness about the fragility of the deep sea ecosystem.

The Deep is presented in a unique, pitch–black environment, virtually immersing you onto the realm of the deep sea. It will unfold to reveal the different depths of the sea, such as life in the mid-water and life on the ocean floor through different themed zones."

Some of the fishes I noticed were small than I remembered. I had pictured them bigger but it turned out to be really small creatures.

The fish which tried to attract and attack Nemo and Dory in Finding Nemo.


I have also vlogged about our visit there.

In case you didn't know, I've been slowly trying to vlog here and there; nothing fancy lah. You can subscribe to my channel if you find my videos interesting and tolerable to watch. haha Similar reason why I started blogging, it's to document whatever I deem interesting/informative in my life but in video format.

I am so grateful that ArtScience Museum had The Deep exhibition. I want more!
