Singapore casino resort Resorts World Sentosa is reopening its Maritime Experiential Museum (pictured) on December 29, it said in a press release on Tuesday.
The facility is opening its doors to the public “after nine months of extensive overhaul and reconceptualisation,” Resorts World Sentosa added. The casino resort is owned and operated by Genting Singapore Plc.
“The Maritime Experiential Museum celebrates man’s exploration and conquest of the seas through the eyes of… four renowned seafarers,” said Jason Horkin, senior vice president of attractions at Resorts World Sentosa, in a statement included in Tuesday’s release.
He added: “Our latest attraction, built with all-new immersive and interactive experiences, is sure to delight and engage all in the family.”
The revamped museum has a total of 15 galleries “including five brand new zones featuring never-before-seen content and installations,” Resorts World Sentosa said. It added that the museum featured visual projections, multimedia shows, interactive hands-on exhibits, olfactory experiences and several displays.
The Maritime Experiential Museum is one of the non-gaming attractions at Resorts World Sentosa.
