Free guided tours of pre-war air raid shelters in Tiong Bahru

 

Sign up for an exclusive free-guided tour and grab the rare chance to walk through a pre-war air raid shelter that still exists today in Tiong Bahru.

Built in 1940, this air raid shelter catered to the small population of residents living in the area. According to the residents who stayed in Tiong Bahru at the time, about a hundred people would fill the air raid shelter when the siren sounded, staying for approximately 20 minutes till the siren ceased.

Free-guided tours take place every Saturday in February.

From 4 February

Tours: 10am – 11am and 11am – 12pm

Tiong Bahru Market

To register for the tours, email Ms Lee Bee Cheng at lee_bee_cheng@nhb.gov.sg.

To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle for Singapore, a significant chapter in Singapore’s history, the National Heritage Board will also be organising a series of exhibitions and activities over the next few months.
