Once Upon a Time on the Orient Express
Singapore is the first country outside France to showcase the mysterious and magnificent Orient Express.
For the first time ever two original 1930 train carriages and a 158 year old locomotive will be shipped from France destined for Singapore to sit pride of place within the 2000m2 exhibition space. Designing and staging a display like the Orient Express in Singapore meant collecting around 300 precious items and documents, having to restore some of them and adapt many of the furniture and displays to its former glory.
The 2 carriages, classified as National Treasures of France, will be the entry into the world of discovery.
Set to replicate the heyday of luxury rail travel, the trains cars ooze history and intrigue. From the trains guests will immerse themselves in a larger than life world of artifacts, interactive displays and historical facts that explain the astonishing dream and journey of the Orient Express from Europe to the Orient. See uniforms, shields, a sleeping car, affiches, Louis Vuitton original luggage used back in time, priceless porcelain, and much, much more, original piece of the carriage exhibited in big blue trunks ….
