SINGAPORE - Admission fees to the Science Centre Singapore and its children's attraction KidsSTOP have been reduced by 30 to 100 per cent from Wednesday.

There is now free admission for Singaporeans, permanent residents and local school groups to the Science Centre during off-peak periods (weekdays, except public and school holidays). Tickets previously cost $10 for adults, $6 for children aged three to 12, and $2 per student for local school groups.

During peak periods, fees for children are now $4, down from $6, and $6 for adults, down from $10..

Admission fees to KidsSTOP, which caters to children aged 18 months to eight years old, have also been reduced by at least 50 per cent. They now range from $2 to $10 for children and adults, down from $10 to $23.

Science Centre Singapore chief executive Lim Tit Meng said: "The lower admission fees is our way of giving back to the community, and we hope it will allow even more Singaporeans to benefit from the various attractions and programmes designed to educate and ignite a passion for science, technology, engineering and mathematics."
