Unfortunately the main building wasn't open so my admission (S$6)was only for the exhibition Cinerama. Rooms on different floors featured the different artists. To my surprise, there wasn't very many visitors... but it was ok for me as I got to take my time in...More

I went to see the "Cinerama" exhibition featuring Singaporean Artist Ming Wong. Excellent show. This is a great first stop if you are exploring the art scene as this is a contemporary art gallery/museum dedicated to art and ideas. This proves a good remedy to...More

Returned here yesterday without first checking if it was open. Unfortunately it wasn't: apparently it is temporarily closed in order to prepare for something else. But around the corner at 8 Queen street there is the Cinerama exhibition. This is a fairly small exhibition of...More

Singapore Art Museum is housed in the wonderful old building that used to be a school. In fact, I have mentioned before that the building was more beautiful than the art it contained. It's closed for three years for renovations - so hopefully they will...More

The art museum is closed until 17Nov as the newest installation is being set up. I believe the new exhibit goes through December some time but if you're traveling in the next two weeks, save yourself the trip.

Our friends took us with a guided tour. Fantastic and definitely worth a visit. The guides are volunteers and very enthusiastic. The building itself is worth a visit as it was an old colonial building.

The main building is closed for renovations but the museum still exhibits in a smaller space - adults S$6. Interesting interactive installations by Asian artists and some great short films. Allow 1 to 2 hours for current exhibits.

Four or five floors packed with art displays by artists from all over the world. It was time well spent. Very hands on. I understand that it is a temporary facility at the moment. The main old colonial building is being revamped. Take the kids.

Hi Solely because we were staying very close by. What we didn't know at the time was that about half of it was closed for some reason. If you have young kids or just a kids heart the associated children's museum is just... More

Pretty much the same impression as Gilman Barracks (well, the bigger building up the hill, on the left), like a re-purposed building, like a work in progress, suitable for certain art exhibits, quite neat, but I would say it... More
