I visited so many times the national gallery; is one of the most beautifully constructed buildings; you can find so much knowledge about the history of Singapore; about art; it’s one of the most relaxing places and has so many coffee places. I think I went few times and looking forward to go again. Very knowledgeable staff lovely people !! Great place for children to learn about the majestic history of this wonderful country.
If you are a tourist this is a must

This gallery is absolutely fantastic. It’s definitely worth the entrance fee as you can easily spend several hours here. The current ‘walk walk walk’ installation is beautiful and amazing fun - kids would live it. Otherwise great selection of both modern and more traditional work. The building itself is exceptional and there’s a good selection of restaurants.

Arrived around 1130am on a Saturday. Very quiet. No queue. Singapore airline passengers gets 25% off making the already fair value even cheaper. Stayed for more than a few hours. Loved it.

We wandered away from the Central Business District to take a look at Singapore’s National Gallery. Found close to Anderson Bridge and by the Court House and Theatre Hall, the Gallery is a huge imposition building, striking from the outside.

Having heard about its prestige and excellent artwork, we were really interested to visit, however sadly, were put off by the prices which stood at 20 SGD for foreigners (0 SGD for Singapore nationals). Some of the reviews on here detail the price and we are in agreement that it is slightly steep for what it is. There are plenty of other attractions worth paying 20 SGD over this. Shame.
