  • This is my second time to the place, and I really love the amount of work put into the exhibition. Very useful information and a lot of ideas woven into the narrative. The struggles of the nation can....  more »
  • Great place to visit to understand how the education landscape evolved to what it is today. For me, it brought back a sense of nostalgia as I saw the textbooks in the display cabinet.  more »

  • Plenty of information regarding the history of education in Singapore. Exhibits cover how education in Singapore began before the colonial era to present day. You can expect to spend 1-2 hours here.
  • WHAT IS THIS: This is the former New Town Primary School building, which is converted into this heritage center, owned by the Ministry of Education HOW IS IT: Basically, there are 3 floors to visit. -1st floor: Lockers and reception desk, and exhibits pertaining to school songs, school buildings and probably 'school nostalgia'. There is also a courtyard and outdoor exhibits which is related to even more 'school nostalgia'! . Once inside, you have to register yourself. YOUR NRIC IS NEEDED! Once done, you are free to roam. OPENING TIMES: I cannot get Google Maps to get specialised timings, so I will have to state it here: DURING SCHOOL HOLIDAYS: Monday >> Friday 9AM >> 5PM SCHOOL DAYS: I am unsure, since their website is sick and broke. Will update. MUST PAY OR NOT: You do not have to fork out cash. It is free. FACILITIES: - Lockers - Help Desk - Self-guided tour - Pantry - NO ELEVATOR! Take note! SPECIAL THINGS: As mentioned earlier, there is a website portal for your self-guided tour there, but the servers operating this service at MOEHC, I believe, is mostly down just to save power. If you really want to use it, inform the help desk. They will turn it on for you. When I visited the place, I heard that MOEHC will move out from this location to somewhere else, near the Police Heritage Center, so hurry up and visit this place before it moves out! END OF REVIEW
