‘Time Traveller’ is an immersive, cinematic experience within the Fort Canning Centre, taking visitors through five powerful acts that present Singapore’s story over 700 years in 60 minutes. Viewers of the indoor multimedia show will be brought through the sights, sounds and drama of the formative events throughout our evolution.  

Outdoors within the greenery of Fort Gate, ‘Pathfinder’ is a free-and-easy experience where visitors can walk through eight interactive pavilions and installations reflecting on Singapore’s journey.

“We had conceived the Bicentennial Experience as an immersive world. Visitors can drop into key moments of our 700-year history and be an eye-witness to the many points where we navigated the tides of time through war, climatic episodes, geopolitics and the everyday struggles of the peoples who were once here," said Mr Gene Tan, Executive Director of the Singapore Bicentennial Office.

"Our hope is that visitors of all ages will be inspired by our tumultuous history and find out for themselves just what it took for us to journey from Singapore to Singaporean.”

Tickets can be reserved on the Singapore Bicentennial website on a first-come-first-served basis. Each visitor may book up to a maximum of 12 tickets online.
