Catch a bird's eye view of Singapore at the Singapore City Gallery, a city exhibition that captures our planning efforts in a nutshell. See the fascinating 11 by 11 metre architectural model, the only one of its kind in the world. Be a planner for the day and build your own downtown with interactive model blocks and much more activities.

Spread over two levels, Singapore City Gallery is Singapore's version of a city exhibition that captures our planning efforts in a nutshell. With more than 30 hands-on interactive exhibits, a visit to the Singapore City Gallery promises to be an enjoyable self-discovery of Singapore's planning journey.

Highlights of the Gallery includes How well do you know Singapore? (Test your knowledge on Singapore); Singapore from above (Catch the Central Area Model and their Islandwide Model); The Concept Plan (What Singapore can be in the near future); Creative Solutions (How to MAXIMISE our land to meet our present and future needs); Our Built Heritage (See how Singapore kept our built heritage and made them vibrant with new life).

On 3 December 2004, the URA Gallery re-open with a new name - Singapore City Gallery.

Buildings in Singapore are a big part of our identity. That is why URA drew up a Conservation Plan in 1989 mapping out the criteria and methods for conservation, so that areas and buildings can be restored whilst still retaining the spirit and ambience of historic places and buildings. More resources can be found at URA website including The Concept Plan.

Singapore Storeys Guided Tours - Behind every building that pushes up into the skyline that is Singapore, there is a "storey". A storey of inspired dreams, thoughtful planning, careful execution, and lessons for the future.
