With the small number of museums in Singapore, if you have visited most of them already and are still wracking your brains on where to bring your little one for an excursion that is both educational and fun — look no further than the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s (RSAF) very own Air Force Museum.
Located along Airport Road next to Paya Lebar Air Base, the Air Force Museum sits on 10,600m² of land so there is ample space for your little munchkins to run about and explore to their hearts’ content.
If you and your family were wowed by the aerial displays at the annual National Day Parade, you will be delighted to know that you can get up close and personal with some of Singapore’s historical fighter jets and military helicopters right at the museum. Featuring an outdoor gallery and five indoor ones spread across two levels, the revamped museum showcases both the Air Force’s heritage and innovations. Your children will be able to touch the Hawker Hunter, the RSAF’s first fighter jet which was flown by the widely-popular Black Knights aerial display team at past National Day celebrations. They will also be able to go back in time to view one of the first helicopters used in Singapore’s first flying squadron. The museum combines relics of the past with modern interactive media. Both the young and old will truly be in for a hands-on experience.
