The National Gallery was a complete surprise to me in Singapore. It is this tranquil, beautiful internal rebuild of two beautiful heritage colonial buildings. Reminded me of the British Museum or the Louve with regards to the reuse of an older space - just beautiful. In the heat of Singapore a few hours (or more - there is so much to see) here is a wonderful opportunity to quietly discover the artistic history and future of this region. As a teacher I was also hugely impressed with everything they had on offer for children. There were babies as young as 10 months getting into the experiences they had on offer. The other lovely thing is that there are so many attendants opening and shutting doors for you and welcoming you into new spaces. Its a very special experience regardless if you are an art lover or not. Like all things in Singapore, it is a world class experience.
