You can finish going through this museum in 20 minutes or less since it's not a big museum, but it's still worthy to drop by since it's free and near the Philatelic Museum (50metres), Peranakan Museum (200metres) and the National Museum of Singapore (400metres). Anyone...More

Interesting small museum you can pop in between others and free to boot. I was interested to see the first (wooden) ladders used were made in Manchester.

This is a small and compact gallery, and the exhibits showcase some of the events in the past as well as the older "retired" fire engines and fire-fighting vehicles. You can see that a lot of thought has been put into this place and the...More
