SINGAPORE - The public will be able to visit the former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station on Hari Raya Haji on Thursday (Sept 24).

The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) said in a statement that the iconic landmark, which was gazetted as a national monument in 2011, will be open from 9am to 6pm.

As with past openings, visitors are encouraged to take photographs and draw their impressions of the station. Drawings can be deposited at the ticketing counter and might be chosen for display at future openings.

The station's' last opening was on Aug 9, during which it hosted a carnival and a live screening of the National Day Parade.

The one-day event attracted 20,800 visitors - a record for the station since its opening on public holidays in February this year.

The Faces of Singapore exhibition, which was set up on Aug 9 for people to pen their wishes and dreams for SG50, will remain till the end of the year.
