Singapore City gallery - Urban Redevelopment

If your kids like our article on LTa gallery (SG Transport History),
URA's City Gallery is even better!

Just make sure kids keep their hands to themselves, and do not play Godzilla !!

URA gallery showcases urban redevelopment and conservation in cosmopolitan Singapore. We are a small city state, and development means some corners and histories are sacrificed for growth.

At City Gallery, we know how future Singapore will look like,
and how our work, leisure, family will be affected along the way.

Video: Building cannot touch, water cannot play :p



Kids can spot various Landmarks, and even Mrt stations.

"Gardens by the Bay" will be new Marina downtown's feature garden.

Did you notice URA Gallery is forested, and resembles an enclosed Garden city?
Greens and water everywhere.

Happy family

Work

Leisure

How can we forget Playtime?

Happy families

We head to Second level for more interactive exhibitions.
Madam Asmah is our friendly URA assistant. She patiently tips us
about the "must-see" displays.

We had so much fun and laughter, some visitors join us.

Miniature models are so alluring and detail,
right down to every buildings, trees, and cars.

Too bad, Daddy cannot ask boys to pose in the river or lake..out-of-bounds.

At the exit, we saw these Samsui women donning red hats



Daddy: Where is Wen Xin? We drop her in school, and trouble teacher to look after her. Cruel? Nope, she had the whole school to herself :-)
