  • Very informative place with regards to the Fire Department, past and present. It is a good must-visit for everyone, both young and old, for locals and tourists!! There is even a real life vintage fire truck inside the premise, for one to climb on board for photo taking. There are plenty of souvenirs on sale at the premise too.
  • The place is too small with a lot of stuff to display, could be good for local to visit to see the history of the firefight in Singapore also story of a big fire, but for foreigner you can skip this place unless you have time to spare.
