The front block of the museum building dates back to 1887. It features an elegant neo-Palladian design, a European style of architecture characterised by a highly symmetrical façade and the use of pediments above windows.
What does it take to keep our country safe, our people united, and our future secure? On the 30th anniversary of Total Defence, we reaffirm the important role that Singaporeans play in keeping Singapore strong. TD 30: An Experiential Showcase is an interactive exhibition that presents insightful and honest perspectives on how Singaporeans from different walks of life make meaning of Total Defence in their daily lives. It may not always be easy, and the future may not always be certain. But as long as we stay together and do not give up, the Singapore Story will live on.
