    whenever I step by Singapore looking for a couple of hours to visit this museum. It is not very extensive and is downtown building takes me back to the colonial Singapore. Bet without hesitation by young artists from Asian countries. Its exhibitions have never disappointed me. For me it is a reason to stop in this mini country on my trips to Asia.

    The museum is big and spacious and the interior is just mesmerizing. Really old style but beautiful as well. The exhibitions changes overtime and they are always interesting to see. A few exhibitions going on in the same time making us not bored

    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.

    The Art Museum removes the free entry privilege for Singapore's senior citizens whenever there is a special and unique art exhibition.
