Lighthouses have traditionally been a beacon of light, direction and often, serve as hope to weary travellers and mariners. From the mid-19th century, the East India Company started constructing these towers to guide and warn seafarers through the rocky straits surrounding the Singapore island. We take a closer look at these intriguing structures, including the Raffles Lighthouse (1885); and Sultan Shoal Lighthouse (1896) and older lighthouses – now decommissioned – such as the Fullerton Lighthouse and the Fort Canning beacon.

This exhibition offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at how these lighthouses operate and sheds light on the roles they played over the last 160 years of Singapore’s history.
