Wonderful architecture encompasses thousands of pieces from across the ages. Truly breathtaking. We loved our visit from start to finish.

Wonderful usage of the old Supreme Court and Court House Buildings. Very helpful staff able to give an insight into some of the paintings and artefacts Bit of a walk from the rail stop Good blend of old and new art.

We were amazed at the services available at the National Gallery. The guided tours were excellent & readily available and the automated iPad tours were handy & easy to follow. The buildings were beautifully joined to become a gallery with amazing light and open spaces for events. Thoroughly enjoyed the Local Artists exhibit as well as the guest exhibition of Impressionists from the Musee D’Orsay in Paris.

If you love all of the above this is a must see! We also took the free one hour building tour, great explanation of the two buildings both former and joint new design and also the historic events that took place there, learnt far more than just wandering around. Interesting mix of art too. Great views of Marina Bay and the dome from the rooftop, shame the bar was closed when we were there, could have sat there for hours!

We visited the national gallery to see the impressionist paintings. I love galleries that involve the visitors in some activity that creates beautiful memories. When we entered, there was a room to the left where a large silk cloth was hung with shiny thread spools that you could use to embroider a small wish! Excellent. The impressionist exhibition was not large but still impressive. Again there were activities where kids could try their own impressionist art with crayons. We then reached the top restaurant on 6th floor and enjoyed a great evening with brilliant view of Singapore.
