Marina Barrage & Gallery Tour

Think you have experienced all there is to reservoirs? Think again. Singapore’s very first reservoir in the city takes a different spin on the conventional nature-themed reservoir. Interweaving greenery with city chic, the Marina Barrage gives you the height of technological sophistication in the throes of urban vibrancy.

Situated at the heart of the up and coming Marina South district, this colossal architectural masterpiece is a must-visit. Take a stroll through the barrage’s vast compounds and come face to face with stunning engineering equipment. Visit the intriguing gallery and discover how the barrage ingeniously prevents flooding to the city’s low-lying areas. Or simply stand atop the green roof to take in the sweeping Singapore city skyline.
