Through The Lens Of Time

The permanent exhibit gallery brings visitors on a journey through the lens of time! Starting from the founding of Singapura by Sang Nila Utama, the gallery brings you on journey through the key moments of history such as the World War II, Konfrontasi and the 1983 Cable Car Tragedy.
Through the use of Augmented Reality (AR), the gallery brings these stories to life and let's visitors discover new stories and perspectives of Singapore. There will be games and videos to make the stories relevant and exciting for visitors.
The visual, sound and set-up will allow the us to better understand and appreciate these key moments of Singapore's history and serves as a learning point for both parents and children too.
