RSN50

Ship Tours and Fast Craft Rides
The RSN’s Formidable-class stealth frigate as well as fast craft will be docked at VivoCity Promenade. Visitors can hop aboard RSS Intrepid, one of the Navy’s most advanced fighting ships, to gain an insight to life at sea and the warship’s voyages around the world. Visitors can also enjoy a ride on the Fast Craft Utility, which takes them on a journey through Singapore’s maritime heritage. Tickets are available for balloting at the links provided.

- Ship Route A will bring visitors to the bridge, or the “eyes” of the ship, and showcase RSS Intrepid’s sharp-edge capabilities including its advanced weaponry.
- Ship Route B allows visitors to step into the lives of our sailors. This route offers a glimpse into the crew’s living quarters, dining room and galley, where meals are prepared.
- Fast Craft Ride offers views of the Singapore skyline as it takes riders along the Southern coastline past key maritime landmarks, such as Keppel Harbour, Tanjong Berlayer, Pulau Bukom, and Keppel and Brani Container Terminals.

Hands to Action Stations

“Anchor for our Nation” Exhibit
Step back in time and trace Singapore’s roots as a maritime nation, as the RSN grew in tandem to safeguard Singapore’s sovereignty and to ensure the safety and security of our SLOCs for Singapore’s continued survival and prosperity. From the first raising of the naval ensign on 5 May 1967, learn how the RSN transformed from a constabulary navy with only two wooden boats to a modern, well-respected, and all-rounded naval force with international reach and influence. See how the navy celebrated its coming of age with navies from around the world and past and present Navy personnel.

Simulators
Ever imagined what it is like to sail through the Singapore Strait or dive below its surface? At the simulator stations, visitors can go on patrol with the RSN’s newest littoral mission vessel and stop a small boat attack in Singapore’s busy waterways, or experience the difficulty and thrill of navigating a submarine to launch an attack on a hostile naval warship while remaining undetected.

“Be a Sailor” Corner
Get a hands-on experience of the work that our sailors do. This children’s corner allows visitors to role-play as a surgeon in the operating theatre of the Rapidly Deployable Maritime Container, participate in damage control to repair a hole in the hull of a ship, and scale a Jacob’s ladder as a sea marshal in the Accompanying Sea Security Team.

Capability Display
A highlight for military geeks—weapons and equipment from the Navy’s arsenal like the Typhoon guns, Combatant Craft Medium, ScanEagle Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, K-Ster expendable mine disposal vehicle, MP5 A3 Submachine Gun, HK 416 Assault Rifle and even a Harpoon Surface-to-Surface Missile will be on display.

Naval Traditions and Customs
Navies around the world have established a strong heritage with naval traditions and customs. Landlubbers—or those unfamiliar with the sea—can find out more about sailor speak, learn about the milestones of a ship from birth to decommissioning, try their hand at basic ropework, and even test their knowledge of naval flags.

Navy Souvenirs
Bring home a memento from RSN50@Vivo. Visitors can collect exclusive Navy souvenirs by completing a Naval Explorer Kit, while children can also have their picture taken in kid-sized Navy uniforms.

On Deck

Performances
Performances are scheduled at VivoCity Central Court twice a day. Catch the elite Naval Diving Unit as they demonstrate their strength, willpower, and endurance in the gruelling boat physical training, which involves heaving 80kg dinghies while doing push-ups, pull-ups, tosses and squats. Also look out for precision drills by the National Cadet Corps, and special performances by children from PAP Community Foundation as they perform stories from our Ahoy, Navy! series of children’s books.
