SINGAPORE - Some 400,000 visitors toured the Future Of Us exhibition which closed on Tuesday (March 8).

The SG50 event, held from Dec 1, 2015 at Gardens by the Bay, showed what living, working, playing, learning and caring in Singapore in the year 2030 could be like.

A wide range of groups, including children with special needs, beneficiaries from various community and welfare organisations, pre-schoolers, grassroots organisations and ethnic community groups, visited the exhibition.

On the final weekend, on March 5 to 6, close to 13,000 joined in special carnival festivities, which included performances by a brass band, jugglers, fire-eaters and stilt-walkers.

Visitors to The Future Of Us Exhibition on its last evening on Tuesday got to take home some mementos from the exhibition.

Mr Gene Tan, creative director of the exhibition said: "While the physical exhibition showcasing these possibilities of the future may no longer be around, it is now in the hands of the thousands who have visited the exhibition to bring to reality that desired future that we as Singaporeans wish to have."
