I had a nasty experience at the parkview museum and a very unpleasant encounter with the security guard. I must admit that i had finger tip touched chair exhibition as I was fascinated with the type of material was used to stack the whole artpiece together. After which, He laser pointed at me for over a minute without speaking a word and proceeded to argue with me when I questioned was it because you cannot touch the exhibit? Honestly, if he had just told me that I cannot touch the artpiece, (in this case, I merely index finger tip point it, you can check the camera footage for my 1 second pleasure) I would have apologised immediately. I have been to many museums. If the exhibition cannot be touched, like in the national gallery, there is tape around the floor of the exhibit piece to make it clear of the boundaries. He told me if I was unhappy, I can leave the place then followed me around. That same day, I just came from the national design centre where “Prototype in Tokyo” is now on exhibition at level 1. It followed the same principle. There are touchables and untouchables in this exhibition had proper barriers like I mentioned as well as SAC which I visited the same day. He is simply the rudest and the most punk like security I have encountered in all museum visiting. Horrible experience, not worth the trouble.

The building itself is amazing, but the exhibition at the museum during our visit, Disturbing narratives, was just as good. Well worth a detour if you are interested in contemporary art.

The museum is situated on the third floor of the Parkview Square. Currently collection of the ancient new year printing from the National Art Museum of China was exhibited in the museum. Interesting.

The Art Deco building is very impressive from the outside but inside it’s just WOW,it’s like stepping back to the 1920,it’s just beautiful.your allowed to take photos and the opportunities for great shots are endless.In the outside area around the building there are some interesting modern sculptures too.

Really enjoyed the museum exhibition (Intriguing Uncertainties). We stumbled upon the building by chance in Bugis. Loved the design of the building (reminiscent of the great gatsby). The environment was so peaceful as well! The exhibition itself was free (not open on sunday). There was not many people so it was easy to relax and take your time to enjoy the artworks. Highly recommend!

An interesting building that looks like it has come from NYC. Has quality artwork around it and the place has amazing detail architecturally. The gallery is quite a large space on the second floor. No cost. The artwork is interesting particularly if you are interested in visual art. The bar downstairs looked really nice.

I’ve been curious about this museum for some time and finally was able to visit it this week during lunch. There was an exhibition of contemporary Italian art. Free to enter and quite interesting to see.

a knockout.

It is a shame that so few locals will see it. Or maybe not, as the only locals I saw were leaning on the statues taking selfies, and tapping on the glass of the frames.

From the 6 Dali works in the foyer of Atlas and Parkview Square, through the opulent bar, up to level 3, this is a real treat.

It is rare to see such wonderful art for free - indeed, this is the private collection if a Mr Wong. And Mr Wong has an eye for modern Italian art.

Much better and actually more classy than "doing" high tea downstairs.

We were just walking towards Bugis MRT when we came across Parkview square which had some interesting sculptures and artwork out the front of Parkview hotel. We decided to go inside to view the current exhibition of young Italian artists which was fairly uninteresting and boring. If you go, check out the bar/ dinning area of the Parkview hotel (very close to where the museum is located) which has a classical Egyptian theme.

I happened upon The Parkview Museum when I was walking along North Bridge Road in the direction of Kampong Glam. My attention was attracted by the magnificent building and the statues in Parkview Square and then I saw the sign on the pavement for The Parkview Museum's "Challenging Beauty - Insights into Italian Contemporary Art" exhibition that is running at the museum from 17th March 2018. It is a Free to enter museum and the collection of art was of interest to me, although some of it was not my taste and to be honest I do wonder how some artists manage to get away with something that to me is something that a kindergarten kid could do in an art session! But hey that is art, some you like some you just don't get!! Anyway if you like your art then this museum is certainly worth a visit. Located on the 3rd Floor of the stunning Parkview Building and open Noon-7pm Mondays to Saturdays.
