Residing in two national monuments, former Supreme Court and City Hall, the National Gallery is a true testament of the modern lifestyle and culture of the island nation. Opened in 2015, one of the newest entrants to the city-state’s arts and cultural scene carries the distinction of being the world’s largest collection of Singaporean and Southeast art: a mind boggling 8000 exhibits.

Nicknamed the ‘Louvre of Asia’, its beautiful building architecture is an art exhibition by itself. National Gallery Singapore presents an eccentric mix of the past, the modern, and the future, all under one roof. Think of it more as time travel rather than a visit to a museum.
