The main attraction to this building is the multiple colored shutters, which really make it stand out. They also light up in different colors at night. Not worth a visit by itself, but it's a nice photo op if you are at Fort Canning, which is right behind it, or Clark's Quay, across the street, especially at night.

We have passed this building many times. I like the colourful wooden shutters on windows. There are some small galleries inside but we never visited, the building looks nice at night.

We walk by this building at least 10 times during our vacation. It's a colourful building right next to the river and busy street. Worth of pic

Since the ministry, whose HQ is housed in this building, has recently changed its name from "Ministry of Information, Communications & the Arts" to "Ministry of Communications & Information", will the building change its name to MCI Building? Only the atrium and shops on the ground floor are accessible to the public. The MCI offices on first floor upwards require... More

The windows painted in the colours of the rainbow were very attractive. The air-conditioned atrium was a good place to take a rest. It was clean and the atmosphere was nice as it was surrounded by the art galleries. The offices were mainly related to the creative industries. I appreciated the way they preserve this historic building.
