  • The Singapore City Gallery is a free small Museum of the planning service of Singapore. They give a nice overview of the challenges of the planners in creating a livable city in such a densely populated area. One of the highlights is a huge scale model of Singapore, with light & sound show. The gallery is close to China Town, and is so fun to pick up if you do walk around in the neighborhood.

  • So glad we accidentally "bumped" into this place. So inspirational what forethought can do. Excellent roots well captured. Beautiful surroundings capturing the rich history of Singapore. A must visit place
  • Start your Singapore trip from this place. Beautiful insights in the history and future of singapore and its development. Highly recommended!! Must for every Architect/ Urban planner.
  • Very cool to see the history (and future) of SG's urban planning. Fun to pick out landmarks on both of the scale models. Great free stop during a hot afternoon.
  • This is THE place to understand the outstanding capabilities in masterplanning over decades of Singapore as a Community. Not to be missed. If you want to understand Singapore, this spot is definitely number one in the list.
  • Great place to see how Singapore will develop. Also gives a nice perspective on the size of the island, it's not that small in the end
