The Sustainable Singapore Gallery at Marina Barrage provides an overview of Singapore’s commitment to sustainable development. It recounts past milestones and also looks forward at the challenges for the future.
The 1,600 square metre Sustainable Singapore Gallery is divided into six zones which trace Singapore’s sustainability journey.
Here is a look at what lies in store within the gallery.

There are touchscreen exhibits where visitors can explore the impact of climate change on Singapore and interactive games to learn about one’s carbon footprint.
