This is a lovely and free gallery with numerous exhibits relating to the civil defence of Singapore. It's great for a 15-30 minute visit.

Interesting small museum you can pop in between others and free to boot. I was interested to see the first (wooden) ladders used were made in Manchester.

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.
