Go behind the scenes for a look at the intrinsic planning that went into building the city's framework at Singapore City Gallery. The gallery showcases the urban planning and land development strategies behind the city's physical development through 3-D models and multimedia displays. The gallery spans three floors, the first delving into urban planning and architecture through revolving displays. The second floor features a replica scale floor model, and the third floor explores preserved historical buildings and sustainable development. Exhibits are interactive and educational.

  • This is not a museum but we learn many things. Videos and models on the ' city and its projects. From panels and animations on newcomers become Singaporeans. We glorify the positive and innovative Singapore policy while you learn a lot.

  • Best place to look at Singapore Architecture history. The are many exhibits which show current state of Singapore and three interactive systems which take you through how urban development is fine in Singapore. Must visit place if you are a architect enthusiast. Also exhibits keep changes in the general area, so keep a watch.
  • City Gallery should be added to your must visit list. It gives you an image of how Singapore has reached this phase. There are a lot of interactive exhibits that are really interesting. Also there is a panoramic view exhibit.
  • The Singapore City Gallery was established in 1999 and showcases Singapore’s substantial transformation to become one of the most recognised city landscapes in Asia. The Singapore City Gallery invites visitors to come and see the city’s architectural plans and landmarks portrayed through miniature models. This provides insight into the planning of the city as well as future developments undertaken by Singaporean authorities.
  • A cool place to explore if you're interested in Singapore, development, urban planning or all three. Stumbled upon it and entered only 15 minutes before closing. It definitely wasn't enough time but was very impressed by the scope and visuals.
  • EXCELLENT beyond the doubt museum and city planning gallery. The Singapore city center and whole island models are very impressive. After seeing these models one will understand that Singapore's 5.5m population is housed at less than 1/3 of the area - the rest is dedicated to parks, industry and military facilities. If you are interested in urban planning and want to understand how Singapore become what it is in last several decades - this place is must stop.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
