When I visited the main building was closed and it was just the Cinerama exhibition that was open. It’s an ok exhibition, but it feels more like visiting a small gallery than a major museum. Perhaps it will be more worth a visit once the...More

We were here in January and had the pleasure of seeing the Impressionist display. This is a lovely gallery. Plan on spending several hours to enjoy the full experience.

Unfortunately the main building wasn't open so my admission (S$6)was only for the exhibition Cinerama. Rooms on different floors featured the different artists. To my surprise, there wasn't very many visitors... but it was ok for me as I got to take my time in...More

Singapore Art Museum is housed in the wonderful old building that used to be a school. In fact, I have mentioned before that the building was more beautiful than the art it contained. It's closed for three years for renovations - so hopefully they will...More

The art museum is closed until 17Nov as the newest installation is being set up. I believe the new exhibit goes through December some time but if you're traveling in the next two weeks, save yourself the trip.

Our friends took us with a guided tour. Fantastic and definitely worth a visit. The guides are volunteers and very enthusiastic. The building itself is worth a visit as it was an old colonial building.
