Exhibition Dates

Bedok, Outram Park and Toa Payoh MRT Stations: 29 April - 26 May 2021

Novena MRT Station: 6 May - 2 June 2021

Food courts dot our island but have you ever wondered where the first such food hall to grace Singapore was located? Alternatively, can you identify the first hospital in Singapore which was named after a person?

Hop on board a train and embark on a learning journey to uncover the lesser-known facts surrounding Singapore’s healthcare and food landmarks such as the Singapore General Hospital and Maxwell Food Centre through SHF2021’s Ride & Discover programme – a content series which reimagines MRT stations as exhibition spaces. Come and relive the stories that connect us at these stations: Outram Park, Novena, Bedok and Toa Payoh.

Singapore HeritageFest

The Singapore HeritageFest (SHF) is the National Heritage Board’s signature annual outreach event that celebrates the many facets of Singapore’s diverse heritage and culture. SHF works with individuals, groups and communities to co-create programmes and offerings. This allows the festival to uncover lesser-known stories and narratives, engender a greater sense of ownership, and empower Singaporeans to safeguard and promote our shared heritage. The inaugural edition of SHF was staged in 2004, and since then, the festival has continued to provide on-site and online experiences with yearly themes that focus on different aspects of Singapore’s heritage.
