  • Small museum but which conveyed us into a world of dreams and fun (Imaginarium). The children were delighted to manipulate works, be active. The four-storey rooms to the right and to the left of the corridor and the discoveries are varied. Surprise behind each door open. Staff is friendly and knows make us diplomatically actors of the visit. The objective is successful because we go questioning. For S$ 6 per adult, it's an unforgettable moment.

  • It was Museum Day, so the entrance was free. I'm glad, as I would have been disappointed if we'd paid. We found the layout very confusing and the art average at best. We would not rush back.  more »
  • We go to SAM at 8Q. They have imaginarium exhibition. So colourful. Love the exhibition. Actualy the building is small. We spent about 1,5 hours for all the exhibition.  more »

  • While on a short trip to Singapore we stopped by the Museum to see their 'Future World' display. The exhibit was interactive and quite fun to experience for all ages. Highly recommended to spend some time relaxing and enjoying the futuristic technology while playing.
  • Had tons of fun visiting Imaginarium exhibition! Friendly and helpful staff and diverse structures to spend a nice time.
  • Most wonderful museum I've ever been to! The Singapore Biennale was taking place and regrouped artists from all over Asia. There were so many things to see and feel. The installations were amazing, challenging the way you thought. It was a bit easy to get lost here but I always found my way back.
  • Was here to see After Utopia Exhibition, back then it was free, no admission fee. I love the building, the interior, and the artworks, it is all beautiful.
  • Singapore's largest contemporary museum/gallery. Exhibitions are hit or miss but great overall. The building the works are housed in was an old colonial-era school. Gorgeous.
