  • This is the same place as The Central Fire House. Having dedicated my life to Fire & Emergency Services I absolutely love the history and hertiage of this facility. The current and former members should be very proud of it. The equipment on display is first rate. The displays of this department and other departments all over the world are excellent. It's a real jewel. Mr. Segar made me feel at home and I'm over 10,000 miles from home.
  • My 3 year old son loves going here. Been 6+ times now in less than a year. Great for little kids who like fire trucks. Good for adults wanting to know more about Singapore's history.
  • Civil Defense Heritage Gallery is just beside Central Fire Station, a fire station with more than 100years of history. Bring kids here for some educational tour. Remember to check out the timing before pop in. Last update/ review Feb2017
