It is more for local audience and this centre is too far to reach, it doesn't worth the trip to go down that far down. It showcases how Singapore developed as a country, however I think they have put too much emphasis on the bombing evacuation plan, which becomes the only thing I could recall if you were to ask...

The focus is on Singapore's national history and military with the objective of providing Singaporeans with a sense of nationhood given that the country is a young nation. Given this the main target audience is towards school groups, the displays as aim at a younger audience. As it is located some way out of the main town and away from... More

There is nothing much to see in the Singapore Discovery Centre. I think it is for local citizen and nothing great for tourist. The bus ride for the camp is meaningful if you are interested in the Singapore military. The good thing is free parking and free admission for locals.

A great place to start if you want to know more about the local culture. Friendly staff, all wore a smile. Paddle boats were fun $2 for 15 minutes, really good price. Exhibits were well maintained. Free entry for residents and tickets include a bus tour too. Far from the city but worth the travel.

Not much to do here other that just wander around. No major changes even after years of existence. It would be better if they spruced it up

A very bizarre experience! It is a long way out and there's not a whole lot to it. It was interesting to see how the Government is trying so hard to promote cultural harmony. It is also interesting how seriously they take the defence of Singapore even after a long period of peace.
