Singapore Art Museum

Loves: Well-curated exhibits that get refreshed with travelling exhibits.

Advice: Do not miss out on exhibits in the extended wing, SAM at 8Q, just across the road from the main wing.

If art inspires you more than history, then all you need to do is head to the Singapore Art Museum. Here you will find displays and exhibits that are meant to excite you and provoke you too. You will not walk away from the museum feeling bored. The museum also has a space where you can relax, unwind, and have a drink.  

The Singapore Art Museum offers a glimpse into the most happening pieces of work and artists. The exhibits cover contemporary Southeast Asian art. You will find paintings, installations, and moving media as well. Nicknamed SAM, the museum is a must-visit for art aficionados.
