Land from Sand, the Story of Our Prodigious Land Reclamation - 23 Nov
Price: S$75 / ticket

Starting from the first land reclamation project along the Singapore River in 1822, Singapore has physically grown by some 25%, from our original 580 square kiolmetres to today’s 720 square kilometres.

Join us to discover just how much Singapore has expanded, the rationale for doing so, and how it has been done at breakneck speed, especially over the last few decades. Learn where the "new" land fill has come from — including from flattened hills and the ground dug out for new buildings — and other fascinating facets of Singapore's growth story.

From the old shores of Singapore to virgin new land, come explore how we have created today's Singapore, one grain at a time.
