  • Probably the first visit to Singapore. The evolution of the city from its origin to today is presented in a very accessible way, even if we don't speak perfect English, via photos or videos clear and perfectly performed and of course models the most important rivals that of Shanghai. The tour is free, on the ground floor of the building are currently presented many models of buildings, especially in Shenzhen, China. So, I highly recommend this visit which really lets you appreciate the visits that will follow...

  • This is a great place to bring your kids to learn about how Singapore urban and landscapes were designed and developed. Entry is free and is a hot spot for many local and international exhibitions. Central location make it a magnet for tourists and working local in the Neighbourhood. A must-go venue if u are in Singapore.
  • Amazing place to visit. To see the development of Singapore and how we reclaim our land. The master plan and modeling of our future landscape is beautiful. Lots of artistic drawing and great learning experience.
  • 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.
  • Also known as Singapore City Gallery, catalogues the history and growth of this City State over the last generation from social and economical perspectives, lots of interesting audio-visual exhibits including a maquett of Central Singapore. Definitely worth a visit for anyone new in town, including tourists. Free entrance.
  • From now till Mid sept, there is a exhibition on DP Architects and its an eye opener to the building designers that Singapore has for the past decade and beyond... A really good place to drop by, there's 3 levels of exhibitions and other present and future landscape marks that is suited for the young and the old, really worth visiting :)
