Changi Experience Studio at Jewel, opening 10 June 2019, is an attraction that tells the story of Changi Airport in fun and interactive ways. Found on Level 4 of Jewel Changi Airport, Changi Experience Studio will bring you on a interactive journey through Singapore’s iconic airport using new and novel experiences.
There are more than 20 touchpoints laid out across 10 zones at Changi Experience Studio. And, after our visit on a media preview, we were left impressed! There had obviously been a lot of thought and effort put into making the Changi Experience Studio fun and engaging; it is unlike any other experience that we have come across at other airports on our travels.

You will receive the brochure-sized Travel Guide as you enter the attraction. Open it up and it looks blank page inside. However, this piece of cardboard is really a smart device disguised as a blank page brochure. You will use the Travel Guide to activate the experiences within the attraction by placing it at designated spots.
