Step back into the Lion City’s colourful, defensive history, tour the country’s oldest fire station, and let them explore antique fire engines and interactive learning stations (where they can pretend to be fire fighters!). Older children (at least 1.2m in height) can join the Tower Tour, and ascend the hose tower, once the highest viewpoint in Singapore, while fun hands-on displays will keep younger children busy. Saturday mornings prove popular at the museum, as the Central Fire Station is open to the public from 9am to 11am (that means a guided tour of the fire station is in order – check out our full writeup here!).
Hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm
How to get there: Exit at City Hall MRT, then walk 5 minutes to the museum. Enter from Hill Street.
