One of the five themed sections, The Open Doors, is modelled to look like an aesthetically pleasing HDB void deck. It's covered in pretty shades of pink and white with bird cages hanging from the ceiling and soft shadow effects.

This section will explore how Singapore has been shaped by its immigrant and multicultural past through the stories of different groups of people who have made Singapore their home over the years, and their reflections on what home means to them.

There are more sections to explore to find out about how our foundation was built in areas like housing and healthcare, experiences that are distinctly Singaporean like eating at hawker centres, and how Singapore held its ground through crises like floods.
