The union of innovation and creativity brings you an extraordinary immersive experience at the newly refreshed Future World exhibition!

Wonder through the mesmeric Crystal Universe and explore Transcending Boundaries, a collection of six new artworks that inspires us to connect and interact with nature. 

Forget about standing under a real waterfall to experience the marvel of nature, the cascading waterfall brought to live with digital technology will evoke the same sentiments when you stand before it.

Collaborate with your little ones to produce a musical hit with Sketch Piston – Playing Music, an artwork that produces a variety of sounds every time you doodle something different on its screen.

Little ones are sure to find immense delight in bringing their colourings of animals and people to live at Sketch People and Animals, one of the new editions at the Park gallery.

What a Loving, and Beautiful World, where touching Chinese characters reshapes them into elements such as wind, rain and trees, is Park gallery’s other new edition.

In addition to the new digital artworks, the refresh has also introduced a new gallery—Sanctuary. Promising all who visit a moment of repose, Sanctuary will frequently renew its artwork. Currently, the gallery features an artwork portraying the different stages of cherry blossoms, symbolizing the transient life of both human and nature.
