What used to be the high court and the city hall have become a beautiful art gallery, and more.

I love how the two buildings have been merged with a modern touch while preserving so many historical features. One should not miss a demo of an old court room as well as a holding bay for those pending trials. Artefacts discovered during structural works to combine the buildings are also on display, which give a good glimpse of Singapore's past.

Children can enjoy the air-conditioned space and there is a room for them to colour or do art if they get tired of walking.

Many good choices of restaurants but some require advance booking. A drink on the top floor facing the Padang (open field, the idea of which again dates back to the colonial era) early evening is a superb way to unwind and enjoy open views of modern Singapore.

We may have travelled back and forth to Singapore for meetings or other occasions but missed out visiting museums. Finally we did find time to visit NGS and spent a couple hours exploring all the exhibitions. Worth to visit indeed!! There is this Minimalism exhibition which really makes us think of human creativity and amazed at the artwork created.

Singapore does have a lot of places worth to visit aside from shopping. Spend a couple hours from each of your visit!

After the visit in this historic building which is linked with the constitutional court building you will definitely have a much broader view and knowledge about South-East Asian Art and Artists. Was there several times.
The rooftop coffee is overpriced, but the view is stunning.

Two architects, one working on a project 'stitching' two older buildings together couldn't miss a trip to the National Gallery. It was a wonderful facility, beautifully done, and we couldn't help but smile when a guide easily picked us for a couple of architects and offered some comments we wouldn't have thought of.

The buildings - former City Hall and Supreme Court — ar already worth visiting, not th mention the collection of Singapore and Asian art within them. There is a solid collection of Singapre artists’ works. Look out for those by Liu Kang, Georgette Chen and Ong Kim Seng. After your visit you can eat at the fine restaurants and eateries in the buildings - Jaan (2 Michelin stars), National Kitchen by Violet Oon (Singaporean food) Aura (you can have drinks on the rooftop) and Yan (Chinese cuisine).
