The National Gallery has a extraordinary collection of art, both modern as older. The building itself is very special as well, also a combination of old and new. When visiting the museum please check with the visitor center the route to follow. The rooftop area should not be missed, which is a design but also for the view very good.

The gallery has wonderful architecture. We didn’t buy a ticket but we were able to wander around the building to take some cool photos. It was also very empty - I guess it’s not a tourist destination. I highly recommend you pay a visit. It’s only a 5 min walk from the MRT.

The art, building and views of Singapore from level 6 are simply stunning. I highly recommend a visit if you are after a culturally diverse experience.

We were there for the children's festival in summer. Each year during this time, the national gallery set an exhibition for children. And it's very interesting, different and fun for kids.
