Sick of theme parks?
Come down to the National Gallery for an enriching experience!
National Gallery Singapore
The former Supreme Court and City Hall now houses the National Gallery. Its predecessor were two significant buildings that had been landmarks of Singapore's colonial past and journey to independence. Today, the National Gallery Singapore has elegantly integrated the former buildings with contemporary architecture design, striking the perfect balance between history and modernity in the heart of this Lion City.
Occupying a total area of 64,000 square meters, the National Gallery is the country's largest visual arts organization. The museum collection includes many art pieces from Singapore and the Southeast Asian region, dating from the 19th century. The exhibitions showcased the social, economic and political history of Singapore and its Asia neighbours. in addition, the gallery works in collaboration with world renown museums like France's Centre Georges Pompidou and Britain's Tate Britain museum to display Southeast Asian art in a wider context. The global project will boost the awareness of Southeast Asia's culture and visual arts.
In 2016, the Gallery won the awards for "Best Attraction Experience", "Breakthrough Contribution to Tourism" and "Best Customer Service (Attractions)" at the prestigious Singapore Tourism Awards for its role in adding to the vibrancy of Singapore's tourism landscape.
