Singapore is no stranger to crisis and adversity. Throughout our history, we have witnessed and experienced wars, regional tensions, economic crises, and civil disasters, among others. These are our scars which are all part of our history and make us the nation we are today. Collectively, we have overcome these calamities and our scars have become a symbol of how we triumphed over adversity and showed resilience in troubled times.

Turn into a time travel agent and complete missions at the Total Defence Exhibits and Permanent Exhibits Gallery. Retrieve your agent card from the ticketing counter and search for the 6 "artefacts" which hold clues to our scars.
