  • Nice place. The architecture of this building is so unique. Lots to see. Wide open space. You need half a day to visit. Worth visiting if you like art.

  • This place was HUGE. Plenty of exhibitions to enjoy and the architecture is beautiful. The staff are very friendly and very willing to engage with you whether to provide assistance or elaborate on the artwork showcased. They offer tours upon request too, no extra charge. Overall ambience was calming and very enjoyable. I spent 3 hours there and still had 1 floor remaining that I did not get to visit due to time constraint. Would recommend bringing a jacket as it gets pretty chilly. Highly recommend if you enjoy the arts, architecture & history!
  • The National Gallery is definitely a national pride of Singapore! The docents were all very friendly and welcoming 🤗 especially towards children 😊 All the children definitely enjoyed interacting with the art exhibits or making some art work 🎭 themselves! Kudos for making art so enjoyable and accessible to the next generation! As an adult, I really enjoyed their curated art works in the other Gallery. My most recent favorite has to be the one from Georgette Chan. This is definitely worth a visit when you are in the area!
