1988
The Idea of
SDC was Seeded
The Idea of SDC was Seeded

The idea of the Singapore Discovery Centre (SDC) was seeded! What began as a suggestion to showcase the history of Singapore Armed Forces soon evolved to become a centre to tell Singapore’s Story in an educational yet entertaining approach.

1991
The Singapore Story
takes Centre Stage
The Singapore Story takes Centre Stage

Singapore, the nation, would take centre stage here, and her story would be told through interactive, exciting and engaging exhibits. To make sure we learn from the best, the team behind SDC went to world-class museums in USA, Canada and Britain, to absorb new ideas and to be inspired.

1992
A Home for SDC
A Home for SDC

In October, MINDEF approved the setting up of this new attraction at the cost of $70 million. A home was found for this fledgling centre – the grounds of SAFTI Military Institute. Mitchell Giurgola & Throp Architects, the people behind Australian Parliament House in Canberra and the SAFTI Military Institute in Singapore, were appointed as the architects for SDC. The exhibition consultant, UK-based Neal Potter Design Associates, had previously done work for places such as the Imperial War Museum in UK.

SDC's
Playful Logo
SDC's Playful Logo

SDC’s playful logo, incorporating a ear to hear the past, eye to see the present and hand to touch the future, captured the enthusiastic spirit of the new centre perfectly. This new logo was unveiled by Second Minister for Defence Teo Chee Hean on 15 April.

Launched with
a Bang!
Launched with a Bang!

The new SDC was finally launched with a bang on 23 November! Officially opened by President Ong Teng Cheong, accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister Tony Tan, the over 10,000 m2 SDC, equipped with some 45 exhibits, was ready to sweep visitors off their feet.

There was the 350-seat iWERKS Theatre, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia and the largest screen in Singapore, set to bowl audiences over with its five-storey high giant screen and capabilities to screen cutting-edge 3D movies and laser shows.

Bringing the
Singapore Story
to Life
Bringing the Singapore Story to Life

An exciting exhibition that literally came alive – that was how SDC opened with a bang. Actors were placed at specific points with exhibits as their stage. Visitors were brought back in time through the performances.

The first skit was set in a coffeeshop in 1964, with a coffeeshop owner and his friend lamenting the hard times they were living in due to the racial riots. The second skit featured two actors at a public housing void deck in the mid-1970s, chatting about how life in Singapore had improved since independence.

Hello Little George!
Hello Little George!

Say hello to SDC’s new member, Little George, an interactive 1.8 m tall robot who could talk, move its head, torso, limbs, eyelids and fingers. It began its journey with the centre by travelling to schools with two other smaller robot counterparts, TT21 and GG21. Together, they told the story of Singapore in a way that entertained school children.

Immersive Experiences
Engaging Exhibits & Immersive Experiences

Life during the Japanese Occupation became more real and imaginable with the Black Box, which opened in October. The 25-seat, sound-proof, dark room was equipped with high quality sound equipment, 3D effects and state-of-the-art technology to recreate the wartime experience for visitors.

To help youth experience life during the Japanese Occupation, SDC organised its very first PoW-WoW Camp for 30 students from Jurongville Secondary School. Eight Hwa Chong Junior College students acted as Japanese soldiers while two Jurongville teachers took on the role of civilians. The role-playing gave participants a clearer idea of what it meant if Singapore were to lose her independence.

Welcoming our
Men in Uniform

In order to reach out to Singapore’s active servicemen and NSmen more effectively and help them understand the need for defence, MINDEF approved a scheme to enable them to visit SDC in March and October respectively.

Using Theatre to
tell Our Stories
Using Theatre to tell Our Stories

SDC demonstrated its knack for creativity again! Using theatre to tell the story of Singapore’s past national dilemmas.

– the Japanese Occupation, the threat of communism, merger with Malaysia and separation.

– the “Wheels of Time” was launched by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Tony Tan on 31 October.

The production featured pyrotechnics, laser effects, moving images and live acting on a revolving stage. In just five months, the show attracted a total audience of 87,000.

Getting Taxi Drivers Onboard!

On every Friday for the whole month of April, the first 250 taxi drivers at SDC were given free lunch packs and goodie bags. SDC came up with this refreshing idea to pay tribute to taxi drivers while getting word out about this new attraction. Taxi drivers also enjoyed free admission in April, and their family and friends enjoyed 50% off the admission fees.

1,000,000th Visitor!
1,000,000th Visitor!

SDC welcomed its 1,000,000th visitor! On 7 November, Mrs Heng-Lim Yan Pheng visited the centre, and was pleasantly surprised when SDC showered her with gifts including a SDC Family Life Membership, $1000 travel voucher and an SDC exclusive hamper.

“On Guard”, a large-format film, brought home the message of Singapore’s commitment to defence. Specially commissioned by MINDEF, the premiere at iWERKS Theatre was graced by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Tony Tan. The film told the story through the experience of a family, when the father was recalled to duty in a large-scale SAF mobilisation exercise on the eve of his daughter’s birthday.
