About

Ever wonder if there's more than meets the eye as you walk through the UOB Southeast Asia Gallery in the Supreme Court Wing? This exclusive tour offers a glimpse into restricted areas of the former Supreme Court, usually out of bounds to the public.

Go behind-the-scenes and
learn more about courtroom proceedings and the experience of persons on trial as you:

  • Traverse a network of hidden passageways
  • Climb through a trapdoor into the prisoner's dock
  • Gain access to the Viewing Gallery where members of public used to sit during court hearings
  • Discover stories of some of the highest-profile cases in Singapore's history since 1939, tried in these very courtrooms 

***
