Former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station to open on Hari Raya Haji

            The iconic Tanjong Pagar Railway Station (TPRS) will open its doors to the public on Hari Raya Haji this Thursday, 24 September 2015, from 9am to 6pm.

2          Singaporeans celebrated Singapore’s Golden Jubilee at TPRS with a “retrolicious” carnival and live-telecast of the National Day Parade on 9 Aug 2015. Organised by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA), the event attracted 20,800 visitors, the highest in single-day visitorship since the opening of TPRS on public holidays in February this year. For those who missed the carnival, we will showcase the “Faces of Singapore” and display the historical milestones of Singapore on exhibition panels at the station platforms till the end of this year.

3          Members of the public can relive the history of TPRS and take a walk down memory lane. They can also take photographs and display their artistic skills by drawing their impressions of the national monument. Drawings can be deposited at the ticketing counter in TPRS and may be displayed at future openings.

4.         Gazetted as a national monument since 2011, TPRS is open to the public on public holidays to allow more people to enjoy the State property. More information about the Open House can also be found on SLA’s website.
