1. Bombard yourself with artworks

First of all, you should tell yourself that the visit itself will be worthwhile, because the Gallery features over 8,000 works from the 19th and 20th centuries. On top of that too, the architecture of the National Gallery would be a sight to behold too: it represents an old-meets-modern architecture, as it was constructed by combining the former City Hall and the former Supreme Court, two of Singapore’s most significant National Monuments.

Here’s a view of the interior as well as some of the exhibited art pieces:

2. Take multiple instagram worthy shots!

It doesn’t take a pro photographer to be able to find Instagram worthy spots in the newly opened Singapore’s National Gallery, because the whole place is filled with many great photo spots! The interior of the Singapore’s National Gallery is properly designed with ample space and lighting so you do not have to worry about choosing the right filter for your photos.

In case you need some inspirations, here are some selected few photos we found off Instagram:

3. Kid friendly interactive spaces

What most might not know about the National Gallery is that it also houses the Keppel Centre for Art Education, a first dedicated art education facility of its kind in South East Asia. These interactive spaces at the National Gallery were designed by artists to introduce art to young audiences in fun and meaningful ways, making the place suitable for the entire family. So other than hanging out with your friends, you can also embrace your inner child at the National Gallery!

4. Walking in the footsteps of giants

Some of the more notable guests who have visited the National Gallery include President Tony Tan and his wife (during the official launch), the Prime Minister himself, Minister of State, Sam Tan, Mr Baey Yam Keng, Parliamentary Secretary, MCCY, our Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, Grace Fu, Lawrence Wong, former Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, as well as tens of thousands of other fellow Singaporeans.
