Images Of Singapore on Imbiah Lookout is a former military hospital located on Sentosa, that has been restored as a museum dedicated to showcasing the history and culture of Singapore. Images Of Singapore is noted for it combination of multimedia displays and lifesize statues to depict various scenes of cultural or historical significance to Singapore.

The main attractions within the beatifully restored colonial exterior of Images Of Singapore is the Singapore Adventure, and Singapore Celebrates. Singapore Adventure traces the history of the island, from its primitive fishing village days, to its growth as a trading port, to Singapore's independence after World War II. Along the way, various important figures of note are displayed, along with explanations on why they were important to Singapore. These are interspersed with various scenes of daily life in Singapore past.

Singapore Celebrates examines the cultural traditions and celebrations of the main ethnic groups in Singapore, as well as items and artefacts used during these celebrations. I find these displays to be very informative and interesting, especially since many of them are modelled with true likeness... It's more satisfying to be able to see a person of significance in the form of a 3 dimensional stature rather than just looking at a photograph.

The star attraction is the multimedia 4 Winds Of Singapore Show. Narrated by the 4 main ethnic groups of Singapore, it is a story of how people from various backgrounds came together to build a nation, with emphasis on Family, Community, Peace and Harmony.

If you're planning a visit to Images Of Singapore, do note that admission fees cost SGD $10, and allocate between 1 to 2 hours for viewing. Guided tours are also available, and while informative, they do require advance booking.
