Visited with the family as part of a small school project for my son. Didn't really know what to expect but we decided to make the best of it. Bought a combined ticket that gave us entry, a short bus tour of SAFTI (military officers' traning institute) and a movie.It's probably pretty obvious to most Singaporeans that this Centre was intended to instill pride in being Singaporeans in a subtle yet enjoyable way. Interesting concepts, designs and facts were presented but I couldn't help feeling a little stifled after a while. To a non-local, I can imagine it wouldn't necessarily be easy to understand or appreciate. The bus tour around SAFTI brought back memories, some good, some not so good.But there were a few things that did concern me. Firstly, this place is so out there it's just not easy to get to. And I kept wondering why the movie was even part of the combination ticket when it usually had absolutely nothing to do with the exhibition - just another way to increase revenue?

What a waste of time; this place is terrible. You're allocated a tour guide who walks you from one display to the next (for a bit) and then leaves you. No new information (if you've visited - for example - the National Museum). Cheesy videos / 'arcade'-type games. Long way out of town. Asked staff to get a taxi back to town, this was impossible. Eventually someone that worked there offered to call a (taxi driver) friend, who would return us to town for $ 45!!! Eventually, after sitting roadside in the heat for a while, we managed to flag down a cab who got us back to Chinatown for $ 18 (on the meter, of course).

2 movies + bus tour + 2 museums all these for only 12-15sgd , and most important is it will re invigorate your patriotism to Singapore! Majula!Hope that they can continually update their exhibits, and if possible move their location somewhere near the city.

A great place to rediscover Singapore for jaded Singaporeans or tourists, the SIngapore Discovery Centre has more than just your typical army exhibits. While the main reason I visited was to check out the army exhibits, I was pleasantly surprised to learn about Singapore and her history in the interactive exhibits they set up. If that isn't your cup of tea, they also have a 344 seater 3D cinema there that screens films from time to time. Pity the location is in a far flung part of Singapore or the crowds there would be better.
