  • 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.
  • Cute little place with some child friendly exhibitions. A must visit when you stroll around SG.
  • The Art Museum removes the free entry privilege for Singapore's senior citizens whenever there is a special and unique art exhibition.
  • Good collection displayed here. But tha place is not vig enough, so you must queing to view the artwork

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.
