Singapore Art Galleries & Museums, Tickets, Exhibitions, Hours & Guide




The ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands is the epitome of excellence in terms of modern architectural design. Inside, the museum focuses on a timeline of history, starting from major pre-historic events, to the pre-Cambrian era, the Triassic period, the Jurassic period and the Cretaceous period. With a massive range of artefacts, live specimens, fossils and demonstrations, discover the pre-historic world through the remarkable collaboration of expert scientists and artists.

For those interested in war history, head to the Battle Box, which is considered to be one of the major tourist attractions in Singapore. Standing tall amongst the most important military sites during World War II, it is a huge bunker located around 9 meters below ground in Canning Park.

With a collection as grand as its history, the National Museum of Singapore has been the centrepiece of all of the museums in Singapore. The museum showcases permanent exhibitions of Singapore’s history and culture and also presents many varied displays and exhibitions of the history and culture of other countries around the world.

Of the many places to visit in Singapore is the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) which holds the most extensive collection of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian art in the world. Visitors to SAM can also enjoy a range of exhibition-related programs, including workshops and public programmes to further promote their extensive collection.

These are just a few of the wonderful art galleries and museums you can explore during your time in Singapore. Click the links below to review a full list of galleries and museums in Singapore.
