Museum@My Queenstown, 我爱女皇镇*生活馆 is a Community Museum that showcases the story of Queenstown as Singapore's first satellite town. Developed by the Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT) in 1953, Queenstown is named after the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Further developments of Queenstown including the town centre took place between 1960s and 1970s.

The Inaugural Exhibition, "Our Stories, Do You Remember Them?" celebrates the stories of the common man in Queenstown as this is a place where they work, live and play. The exhibits were collected over a period of 8 years and spanning more than 60 years history of the town.

Among the highlights include the iconic "女皇Cinema" signage that was rescued prior to its demolition in 2013 as well as the "SIT Planning Map of Queenstown" dating back to 1958.

Entirely curated and run by volunteers from civic group, My Community, this is a cosy intimate museum that you probably wouldn't want to miss when it opens its doors on 5th January 2019.
