I find it really cool that they show respect and gratitude to the hard working people. Fire Fighters / Civil Defense workers are commonly underappreciated. To have a gallery/museum for these people is awesome. It was unique to see the progress in development of their equipment through out history. It takes 30 minutes of your time to go through the...

This is a great place to visit for both adults and children, the retired fire chief on hand to discuss things and answer questions is very Knowledgeable, very nice man that has served his city well, ask him about the dogs and the role they play in major rescues, the central fire station is a beautiful building full of history

This attraction is located across from the Funan Mall and next to the entrance to Fort Canning Park. We came across this attraction by chance. We had some time to kill and didn't want to hang about outside too long because of the haze. This attraction is free. My husband and I really enjoyed it. It's very informative with hands... More

My parter's son is a Firefighter in the UK, so we planned to visit the museum contained in the historic and architecturally beautiful Fire Station Building. Entry was free, and the exhibits are few, but beautifully presented. It is run by volunteers and the guys we spoke with are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a delight to spend some time with. Please... More

This is a fairly small museum but it contains a few interesting exhibits including some old fire engines in excellent condition. It's easily combined with a visit to the Central Fire Station on a Saturday morning (when they have their regular open day for kids to come and look at the fire engines). This museum is free for everyone but... More

A good Museum with free entry, with Hands on attractions and plenty to see. See the Fire Engines of Bygone days and sit inside to get the real feel of a fire fighter !

Good for educating the kids on the hazards of fire, devastation and impact on population (i.e. Bukit Ho Swee Fire). Discover and understand the expanded functions of Singapore modern civil defence force.
