  • I really enjoyed my visit here. I found it very educational. The staff were accommodating and helpful  more »
  • The place gave me an inexplicable sense of exhilaration, i don't know why all the years the NDP National Day Parade is always held at the Marina Bay Float and not at the Padang in front of NGS  more »
  • It was an informative time. Very quiet and nice. The location is just a short walk from Clarke Quay, Chinatown. The museum is very stops and the staff are very friendly and helpful. "

  • I loved my visit to the gallery. There is such a variety of art on display from such diverse artists. We were also lucky enough to be there for the minimalist exhibition. They have minimalist pieces from all the the world and ages. An unexpected highlight was the amazing view from the rooftop restaurant
  • First time heading there, and I was really impressed. As we were walking in, they asked whether we wanted to try the guided tour on Southeast Asia, and we gladly accepted. The tour was very informative and the guide did not just feed us information, she also prompted us to think. The galleries were nicely structured and the pieces were impressive. A good destination for Singaporean and tourists alike
  • Went to the museum to acquaint myself with Singapore's history. Was particularly fascinated with the minimalist exhibition that was taking place that time. The gallery in itself is an architectural marvel. Extremely beautiful! Once you go inside, it's pretty huge and you will need to shell out 2 hours easily to get a sneak peak into every gallery inside. I would highly recommend this place.
  • A wonderful building. The modern art exhibition is extensive and very interesting. There is also an excellent historic part of the museum. It covers the history of Singapore. It also has a brilliant rooftop bar with great views of the city. This is a must see of Singapore!
  • Love this museum. Artsy building, helpful patrons, and quite large selection of arts. The permanent collections are from Indonesian and Malaysian painters --quite a surprise they don't have that many of 'local' arts. The free guides are very knowledgeable and helpful. Lovely building, too. Should be free for local, though.
