Singapore City Gallery, formerly known as URA Gallery, is a three-storey visitor centre located in The URA Centre, Singapore that charts Singapore's urban transformation and future plans. It was established in January 1999 and is managed by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). It features a large model replica of the Central Area of Singapore.
The Gallery aims to showcase Singapore’s physical transformation in the last 50 years to become "one of the most liveable cities in Asia." It also aims to explain how "forward-looking, long-term and integrated land use planning and partnership between private and public sectors is achieved" in Singapore. The Gallery also presents "creative solutions to balancing different competing needs, the many live, work, play opportunities planned for, extensive conservation efforts and urban design strategies to create a more distinctive Singapore."

If you can visit just a few places in Singapore, I would strongly recommend you to have a look here in the Singapore City Gallery. Island model, central area model with buildings in future planning, city planning games... Very interesting especially when you are interested in this subject. It shows marvelous urban city planning strategies with its rich exhibition resources. Hong Kong should envy and learn from Singapore for its world-class urban planning while Singapore should envy Hong Kong for its having so many lands despite its constant whining for being not enough.

Interesting look at how Singapore became Singapore. I'd recommend if you want to learn more about Singapore and maybe even places to visit etc. Perfect visit for those interested in architecture too.

Closed on Sundays but area outside is fun with some installments by some campaign to make public spaces in Singapore enjoyable. There's a piano and this interesting interactive exhibit that you can try out if you happen to pass by.

Free and well organized urban planning museum. Definitely check it out if you're interested in architecture, urban planning, maps, or even general history about Singapore. Plus right next door is the Maxwell Food Centre where you can grab cheap and good food.
