The Making of ‘The Bicentennial Experience’

How was an indoor rain scene created, and how did experts build a rotating auditorium with panoramic screens and surround sound technology? Visitors can hear first-hand from the industry experts behind The Bicentennial Experience, and find out what went into the transformation of Fort Canning Centre and Fort Gate into an immersive, interactive showcase of the 700-year journey of Singapore over three sessions in July. This programme includes a visit to the ‘Time Traveller’ (indoor experience at Fort Canning Centre) before the talk.
