  • I loved my visit to the gallery. There is such a variety of art on display from such diverse artists. We were also lucky enough to be there for the minimalist exhibition.

  • First time heading there, and I was really impressed. As we were walking in, they asked whether we wanted to try the guided tour on Southeast Asia, and we gladly accepted. The tour was very informative and the guide did not just feed us information, she also prompted us to think. The galleries were nicely structured and the pieces were impressive. A good destination for Singaporean and tourists alike
