This small museum was a colonial heritage building that was nicely restored and preserved.Nicely contrasted by the contemporary art exhibited therein.Don't miss the souvenir store at the ground level that is connected by the inner yard.There is also a spanish restaurant 'Via Mar' next to the store. Nice dish.

Visited SAM last week when a few galleries were closed due to change over, this could have been a real downer however instead it was amazing due to a great gallery guide! Susan walked me around the Presidents Talents show with such enthusiasm and knowledge giving me a deeper understanding of Singapore both current and past.Amazing building and great location.

A beautiful building in itself, the gallery has several different sub galleries which host different exhibitions.

Tired of trawling aimlessly around another shopping centre, I randomly decided to visit the Singapore Art Museum on my own. The former home of St Joseph's institution is now dedicated to local and Southeast Asian art history and contemporary expressions. With more than 6500 artworks, it houses the largest 20th century Southeast Asian art collection across the globe. I admired most of the artwork but didn't quite understand the abstract pieces though. I absolutely love the romantic architecture of the whole place. Some parts of the museum can be rented out. You can enquire with the staff if you're keen.
