Loved this place
Aug. 2019 • Solo
Might not be an interesting place for all, but as an university student have interest in economic development of Singapore, HDB was surely a nice place to visit.

They have many fun stuffs to entertain kids, such as touch screens, dioramas, and projection mapping.

Mini museum

A place that our national housing and development shares the history of public housing in singapore. From the exhibits, I can see that we have come a long way. Informative!

Great place to visit!
Oct. 2018 • Family
I work in HDB Hub office tower but this is the first time I have visited the gallery with my family as it has recently revamped. It was great! I think it’s a must visit place for local residents and tourists. It’s like a museum. Kids love the slide too. It’s beautifully done up. I will visit again when I have more time. And it’s free entry! Near to Toa Payoh MRT Station.

What a fantastic experience, it was so cool to see floor plans of Singaporean flats and how they live. They also had 3D models of previous and future housing developments which was really neat. If you wanna see an authentic Singaporean experience, this is one!

A must see to view the public housing in Singapore
Oct. 2016 • Couples
It is an essential place to visit when any eligible party is ready to apply for a public housing unit in Singapore. The gallery showcases all various units types of mockup apartments (2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-room) in fully dressed-up conditions. Further, it provides useful renovation tips via the multimedia capabilities.

Its just a gallery
Oct. 2016 • Solo
If you are a tourist, you can visit this, but nothing interesting. If you plan on visiting this, you can also walk around toa payoh HDB hub shopping mall (toa payoh centre). Bus Interchange nearby

Gallery nothing special, but should look at the rest of the building.
Jul. 2015 • Friends
This is a place I like to go to. The HDB gallery itself (located in the basement) is an exhibition about the history and development of public housing in Singapore. It is interesting, but feels a bit like a commercial.

However, if you go to the ground flour you can walk around and have a look at models of new developments and housing areas. If you then go to the third storey (via a link bridge), you can go and have a look at life-sized show flats in all the different sizes available. This can give you a good insight into how Singaporeans live and will definitely be worth a visit for people who are interested in this kind of things.

It's also free.

Not buying house
Aug. 2015 • Couples
No need to buy to go there. Walking around there does not motivate you to buy a house. Very expensive and not eligible to buy

Interesting exhibit on public housing in Singapore
Jan. 2015 • Family
Although this gallery comes across more as an exercise in government propaganda, it is nevertheless an interesting display on developments in public housing in Singapore. And credit should be given for the evolution in the quality of housing in Singapore from the 1960s (when essentially much of Singapore was a giant swamp with inadequate housing) to the present day where about 80% of the population lives in public housing. The video display showing happy Singaporean families is a little over the top, but the rest of the display is worth a look.

Decent
Sep. 2014 • Solo
Interesting if you happen to have a passion for buildings and urban planning. SIngapore's public housing system is quite good and you will be able to see new HDB building projects, past achievements etc in this area. Toapayoh is right in the heart of a local neighbourhood so you could take some time to walk around the shopping area to experience what a local shopping experience is like.
