Museum is well maintained and equipped with fire trucks and uniforms of different eras. It managed to create a journey of civil defence in Singapore.

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 exhibits well maintained, and the vehicles are regularly polished and waxed, every Monday I believe. There are also hands on and interactive displays that may interest the younger visitors. Do also take a look at some of the helmets worn by other countries' fire fighters. Entrance is free to this place of interest, but do note the operating hours.

This was a really neat little stop, its free which is great, but it also has a great amount of history. It was interesting reading about Singapore during WWII and such, then upstairs it brings you to todays world and tells you about the fire service. To bad there is no shop. If you plan your visit right Saturdays the Firefights also put on a display and let you see their apparatus. It was also neat to see the probationary firefighter are made to go through and learn their heritage. That is awesome.

Honor the brave, many run away but few are called to run in.

We stumbled on this free museum as we were walking to Fort Canning Park, so stopped in and were very surprised by the extent of the exhibits. Very helpful attendants and exhibits were quite good on fire tragedies, WWII experiences, equipment, etc. There was a group of young school age children; I wished something like this had been available to me when mine were small. Recommend a quick stop if in the area - this was a nice find.
