An interactive journey of Singapore’s development
The Gallery's 700-sqm floor space includes five interactive exhibitions that trace the various stages of Singapore's land transport development - Journeys, Memories, Formative Years, Land Transport Today and Vision/Aspirations.
Walking through the Memories exhibition, visitors will travel back to pre-independent Singapore to learn about the evolution of road networks and the early transport modes. Here, visitors will be able to find many ancient transportation models such as the old buses, trishaws, taxis and the very first car to ply Singapore’s roads in 1896. Traffic controlling measures from the past are also showcased, including old uniforms and 'wings' used by traffic police before traffic lights were implemented.
Artefacts and models that showcase Singapore’s history are displayed, including old bus tickets, Restricted Access discs, bus passes, and even a model of the tunnel-boring machine that was used to create the MRT stations in the heart of the city.
The Formative Years and Land Transport Today exhibits Singapore’s land transport developments and showcases the issues that LTA faced from 1965 to 1995, such as road safety, road maintenance and road facilities, and how the LTA solved these challenges.
There is also an interactive area, the Challenge Theatre, where visitors are presented with transport planning challenges and encouraged to participate in the planning of Singapore’s future land transport system.
Last but not least, the gallery’s high-tech Visions and Aspirations section offers visitors a glimpse into Singapore’s future transportation plans.
The Land Transport Gallery provides guided tours and can accommodate up to 40 people for each dedicated guided tour timing. More information about the Land Transport Gallery can be found at https://www.lta.gov.sg/ltgallery/.
