Bukit Brown MRT Station is an underground shell station along the Circle Line (CCL) Stage 4, located within the Mount Pleasant planning subzone. Ventilation buildings and maintenance access shafts are the only facilities visible at surface level, which are served by Jalan Mashor.

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.

As a shell station, only structural provisions have been made for Bukit Brown Station in the form of a station box. Further addition and alteration/refitting work is required to bring the station up to operational status, which will only take place when the area is more developed. Currently, trains travelling between Botanic Gardens and Caldecott pass through Bukit Brown without stopping. The station code CC18 is reserved for this station.
