Singapore Maritime Gallery, Guided Tour, Parking, Entrance Fee & Hours
Go back in time from when Sir Stamford Raffles first landed in Singapore. During this era, Singapore was just small seaside villages that depended on the sea for their livelihood. The exhibits take you through the journey to the rise of the modern port, as you learn about how ports work and how they contribute to our daily lives.
The lighthouse models are one of the gallery’s main highlights; features two replicas of Singapore’s lighthouses: the Raffles Lighthouse and the Horsburgh Lighthouse.
Recent renovations have also added interactive elements for an enhanced immersive experience. Visitors can steer ships through the ship bridge simulator, and understand the challenges that come with navigating ships at night or in inclement weather.
Other highlights include the display of other maritime vessels and the living gallery. The museum comprises two zones dedicated to workshops and exhibitions, plus a resource corner where you can check out maritime publications.
The Singapore Maritime Gallery is located at 31 Marina Coastal Drive at the Marina South Pier. Opening hours are 9am to 6pm on Tuesdays to Sundays. Admission is free.
