My school brought us here for our learning journey! It was a wonderful experience! We learnt about many different ways in surviving in the jungles and wars and the basic needs for soldiers. We learnt about concealing, cover and camouflage, and also tried out their obstacle course, which was challenging and fun! On top of that, we got to shoot... More

The Singapore Discovery Centre is a place where one can learn about the history of Singapore. Great place to watch a movie too.

Singapore is not only the glimmer of the skylight, vast selection of foods, there is history in such a small country which blown your mind away to learn how much the Army meant and matters, what the Army have achieved and provided aids not to their own but to the neighboring countries. A good educational facility. The guides were retired... More

This place is free for citizens, while you pay for admission if you are a visitor. The place has many interactive displays you can engage in, and there are some exhibits that are quite good in bringing out the essence of being Singaporean. For example, the intro video on So Singapore is a concise summary of Singaporeans, although it is... More

While the SDC is listed under the Defence category in the Museum Roundtable, it seems to surround National Education more than anything. The entire SDC is full of interactive exhibits, from games, to quizzes, to even a news reporting simulator. It is a fun way to learn, especially for children. The place might not be a cup of tea if... More

This place is quiet and surprisingly super nice. The main hall is about Singapore (exhibits and info on Singapore in the past and present). However, they also have Iwerks theatre, screening updated 3D movies at a fraction of cost ($7 only). They also have XD threatre (like roller-coaster simulator) which costs $10/pax. There is also Army museum nearby. The best... More

Spent several hours at the discovery centre. Really interesting. Make sure you spend $3 more and get the bus tour including the military museum. Very easy to get to on the MRT.

This place is located right at the end of the East-West line - about a 10 min walk from Joo Koon station. We came on a Saturday morning in an attempt to escape the haze problem currently facing Singapore. Entrance is free for locals, but you'll have to pay $10 if you bring your helper or any other foreigners (which... More

To escape the haze, we brought two 6-YO and one 18month old to the discovery centre. It turned out to be quite a good decision. The 6YOs had fun with the interactive exhibits and collected the stamps to exchange for a recyclable bag. Lunch was not that expensive , considering there was only one "Canteen" there. As Singaporeans, the entrance... More
