The MICA building, with all of its 911 windows painted in a myriad of colours like green, red, yellow and blue, is sure to catch your eye as you explore the Civic District trail. Its vibrant exterior and revamped internal space makes it the ideal venue for large-scale exhibitions and performances.

It was refreshing and interesting to see this colorful old building. We were on our own walking tour to discover places nearby and were delightfully impressed with this building. Worth a visit just to take pictures. We did not enter.

The MICA building is beautiful and stands out in Clarke Quay due to the colourful window frames which adorn the building. Take time to enjoy it from the outside.

Of course the building looks very cheerful and inviting on the outside. Ironically, the MICA building at 140 Hill Street, is mainly known for having been the Old Police building. It now houses several life-enhancing ministries: culture, youth and civilization. Don't just go by to...More

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...More

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
