  • When I lived in Singapore, I visited this museum several times. I find the collections that they have very innovative and completely in a sometimes contradictory along Singapore almost as controversial. I can say that I was pleasantly surprised about the visits to this museum. The building is also very beautiful. As a student also get discounted entry!

  • Great place to visit. I enjoyed the exhibitions that were featured there. Defintely would recommend Singaporeans and Permanent Residents to visit as admission is free and it is convenient to access as the closest MRT station, Bras Basah, is nearby.
  • Many art exhibitions and music events will be held here. Good place to hang out during weekends and public holiday! Free entrance for Singaporean and PR, reasonable entrance fee for foreigners.
  • The local arts are down to earth and close to heartlands. The founding prime minister self portrait made with shampoo bottle caps is amazing.
  • I really enjoy the revolving exhibitions at SAM. The curators are doing a good job at exploring different facets of art, especially contemporary SEA visual art. Having the best museum coffee ever (@7kickstart) helps :)
  • Previously a prestigious Catholic missionary school (started by order of the De La Sale brothers) that produced many of Singapore's cabinet ministers, including the current President. One of a kind architecture with its grandeur unmatched by any other building. Now a museum hosting art works of modern artists.
