Impressive collection of Southeastern Asian Arts. Staff were extremely helpful. Admission was not cheap but worth a visit.

I went here a few times. The free exhibits are generall quite good and you dont need to necessarily spend to go and admire the art exhibitions. However once in a while the Gallery does offer some attractive material such as the Yayoi Kusuma and the French art collection from the Museee d'Orsay. Worthwhile for weekends

This is the second time we visited the place but we dont remember it til we reached there. Each time, we went for the children festival. This time is for the Small Big Dream. I find it interesting that they try to make it interesting and introduce gallery for suitable for children. There are lots of exhibits so you need to move around the gallery to experience the exhibits. Depending on the theme for the season, the exhibit hall might have different types of exhibits.

There is also Keppel Art Centre which have interesting things for the children to play.

My girls' favourites are the fire walk and the interaction play to create the costumes etc. v interesting!

Overall, it is also recommended for children to go. I did not visit those exhibits meant for adults, hence unable to comment.

Good job to National Gallery who always come up with different themes.

This has been our most favorite place to enjoy the peaceful moment and also artistic work over the weekend in stead of squeezing inside the crowds in the shopping mall. Specially love the kids exhibition especially the annual children festival. Our daughter can spend one whole day here.

We chanced on visiting the National Gallery Singapore at the right time of year (January 2018) and were treated to the exhibition "Century of Light". This exhibition featured the "Colours of Impressionism" and "Between Two Worlds". It was a priceless opportunity to see some of the best impressionist paintings including those of Monet and Renoir. The "Between Two Worlds" exhibition featured Juan Luna and Raden Saleh and was most interesting also. The gallery offers other permanent exhibitions and the building itself is unique and full of character.
