Republic of Singapore Air Force Museum
Paya Lebar Air Base is the home of the Republic of Singapore Air Force Museum. The Museum is situated on Airport Road just past one of the entrances to the air-base. A Taxi from Changi Airport will take about 15-20 mins and will cost about SG$15 to SG$20.
To be honest, there’s not that much to see, and as is the norm on this crowded island, it’s a little cramped. However, you’re not going to see these aircraft anywhere else are you? So if you’ve got a couple of hours to spare, pop over!
As well as the aircraft and helicopters there are some other aviation related exhibits upstairs.
Entrance is free, there’s restroom facilities and a small shop. It’s open as follows:
Tuesday to Sunday: 0830-1700 (closed on Mondays and Public Holidays).
400 Airport Road
