A really lovely surprise for me to learn that Singapore has an equally high quality art museum, as I normally only enjoy art museums in Amsterdam or London or New York City or Washington DC. So very happy to explore this museum, even the museum offers fun interactive ways in engaging me to learn the history of each art object.... More

The exhibition Atlas of Mirrors was on when we visited and we were fortunate to have a guided tour with a knowledgable guide. The works were certainly thought provoking and unlike the usual contemporary art one sees in galleries. The building was once a school for boys and was a contrast to the contemporary art on display. Well worth a... More

If you like modern art with a message, this is a must-see museum. Artists from throughout Asia with extremely innovative, beautiful, and mind-challenging pieces of art. I was not expecting this caliber of works.

Went to see the Biennale which was really really interesting anyway, but I was amazed by the level of interaction from very friendly and informative staff. I've been in art galleries all over the world and not had such well directed info. The building is small and beautiful in its colonial self, which makes the shows a compact experience. Be... More

Being a fan of contemporary art I loved this museum a lot! At the time of our visit „5 Stars: Art Reflects on Peace, Justice, Equality, Democracy and Progress” exhibition was taking place saluting to Singapore’s 50 years jubilee and the five stars on the Singapore flag, representing universal humanist values. I was highly impressed by „No Man” a 15... More

The museum was not too crowded and there was an atlas exhibition going on during our visit. However, the mirror stair was closed so we had only a glimpse shot of it. The rest of museum are okay, maybe i'm not an art-fan after all.

I met a friend who lives in Singapore here, & we both thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The museum houses contemporary art in a colonial building, which offers an interesting contrast. Currently, they have a Biennial exhibit, which was a terrific compilation of Southeast Asian art. They offer free guided tours in English, which added to the experience. We viewed many... More

We went here for some of the interesting displays from local and international students, some varying in ages up until 75. The displays provided various aspects of what they interpreted images and designs, was mind boggling.
