The MICA building, with all of its 911 windows painted in a myriad of colours like green, red, yellow and blue, is sure to catch your eye as you explore the Civic District trail. Its vibrant exterior and revamped internal space makes it the ideal venue for large-scale exhibitions and performances.

The building used to belong to the police and is now a government building. They have done a nice job recovering the colonial building. It definitely calls your attention as you go by it. There are sone galleries there as well.

The architecture of the building is certainly eye-catching with its very colourful shutters and 'stoic' style. Many people spoken to remembered it for those reasons but didn’t venture inside at all.

It was refreshing and interesting to see this colorful old building. We were on our own walking tour to discover places nearby and were delightfully impressed with this building. Worth a visit just to take pictures. We did not enter.

Heard that the art galleries inside this building are a "good find', I decided to go there and have a look. Knew beforehand that the galleries mostly specialize in south East Asian art and since I'm not a fan, I went in with low expectations...More

The main attraction to this building is the multiple colored shutters, which really make it stand out. They also light up in different colors at night. Not worth a visit by itself, but it's a nice photo op if you are at Fort Canning, which...More

We have passed this building many times. I like the colourful wooden shutters on windows. There are some small galleries inside but we never visited, the building looks nice at night.
