  • Quite many painting collections to view. National Gallery is our former supreme court. The authority did an excellent job to convert it into various exhibition galleries. It includes cafes and eatery. Do take a lift to level 5 roof terrace to take photo of downtown scenery. You could see Esplanade, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore Flyer and Fullerton Hotel (Former Singapore General Post Office) in one picture. Definitely worth the time spent over there! We were there from 10am to 215pm.
  • The National Gallery is actually two former government buildings that have been 'joined' together with an architectural makeover that is truly beautiful to behold. We arrived just in time to join a wonderful guided tour with a fantastic docent, Jenny, who told us all about the history of both buildings and the process by which they were converted into the National Gallery. After visiting several noteworthy locations in both buildings, the tour was capped with a stunning vista near the roof that overlooked many of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks, a very fitting finale to a well-led excursion. Once left to explore on our own, we visited some of the art galleries and really came to appreciate the diversity of the collection. We encountered several more knowledgeable and passionate docents who were kind enough to speak to us about the collection, but also knew when to give us room to explore on our own. There’s also a fun digital installation that allows you to curate your own scrap book of some of the museum’s pieces and email it to yourself (for free) as a keepsake poster of your visit. In addition to being a great place to spend a few hours, I couldn’t help but think this would be a phenomenal space for special events.
  • Beautiful building... but that's it! I thought the art pieces were poorly displayed. Almost half the pieces were not worth being in a such an impressive building. I hope the gallery would slowly amass more world class art pieces and over the years the pieces on display get better. I do give the gallery top marks for focusing on Asian artists though.
  • Really good place to visit, is rich in history and brings an eye opening experience to the history of Singapore and how it came to be what it is as a thriving country now. Lots of interactive exhibitions as well as a good view on level 6 that allows people to have a great view of the marina bay city skyline as well as the Padang. Worth a visit :)
  • Very large and interesting gallery. A lot of exhibitions and cultural shows. Clean, cool and extremely good staffs . Will be very crowd on public holidays

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
