Opened in November 2015, National Gallery Singapore is a brand new visual arts museum that engages, excites and inspires with the art of Singapore, Southeast Asia and the world. The Gallery will contribute to Singapore's ambition to become a global city for the arts. Located in the heart of the Civic District, two monumental buildings-the City Hall and the former Supreme Court-have been refurbished and will be reborn as National Gallery Singapore. At 64,000 square metres, we will not only be the largest visual arts venue in Singapore but also one of the largest in the region. The Gallery will focus on displaying Singapore and Southeast Asian art from the 19th century to the present day. Through a comprehensive collection, the Gallery will present the development of Singapore and regional cultures to tell their social, economic and political histories.

I visited National Gallery with my husband mainly for the children's biennale: what kids dream, art creates. It's really nice and we enjoyed ourselves. Be prepared for queues if you're there on a weekend. Highly recommended if you have an afternoon to spend. Sincerely, DX...More

The national gallery is ambitions, it has the bones for a great centre and even may change the broader society. But at this stage, it's a monument to inadequacy. I know that's a harsh statement, but there is something fundamentally wrong here. It's not that...More
