Bukit Brown MRT Station is a currently unopened underground station along the Circle Line (CCL) Stage 4, located within the Mount Pleasant planning subzone. As a shell station, it is only used as an emergency access shaft, and a one-lane road (Jalan Mashor) serves the station facilities at surface level.

The station gets its name from the nearby Bukit Brown Cemetery, named after George Henry Brown, the first owner of the land, and was used as a Chinese burial ground between 1922 and 1973.

Only structural provisions have been made at Bukit Brown station, which will be refitted and opened only when the area is more developed. Currently, trains pass through its side platforms between Botanic Gardens and Caldecott stations without stopping. The station code CC18 is reserved for this station.
