The Jubilee walk was introduced sometime back in 2015 to commemorate Singapore’s 50th independence anniversary. It is an interesting trail linking to some iconic places and museums in Singapore. It is a good option for visitors to know more about Singapore by walking around the city and visiting the places of interests, no guides needed. We went on a part of this 8km exploration starting with the National Museum and we ended at National Gallery. We spent the most time at National Museum, Peranakan Museum and National Gallery.
Tip – Look out for the ground emblems or markings of SG50 to know if you are still following the trail…
National Museum – there is currently ‘we built a nation’ showcase of how Singapore became what it is today, LKY’s house and life and other interesting exhibits like ‘modern colony’ and ‘growing up’. We especially liked the ‘voices of Singapore’ slideshow where were were reminded of the older Singapore and familiar national songs like ‘五脚基’ (which is five foot way – according to wiki are pedestrian walkways indented on the ground floor of buildings so the levels above provide shelter from sun and rain), stand up for Singapore and other familiar tunes… Check out our previous visit
Peranakan Museum – about 5min walk from National Museum. As there were no new exhibits this time, check out our previous visit
Philatelic museum – about a minute walk away is the world of stamps and first day covers. This time, Snoopy and Charlie Brown were on display. With Easter recently, there were also bunny stamps on the wall. Check out our previous visit here
National Gallery – we ended our half a day walk at this beautiful location where we had coffee and a light bite. Check out our previous visit here.
