A quick visit to National Gallery Singapore

National Gallery Singapore has been popping up from the social media feeds ever since it was opened to public. “Singaporeans are free to enter!” that slogan certainly attracts the locals. I was having a meeting nearby, so I thought I might as well take the opportunity, and I was lucky that it was almost empty on Tuesday. The only regretย is that I went in for the last 50 minutes, so there’s hardly anytime to see and read the artworks. Well, might as well make the most of it.

The first look interior design is mesmerizing and spacious, great use of natural lights and feels very pleasant.

If you follow the guide from the information counter, one of the first place you will visit is the prison.. yes the cell.

The dome thing that everybody likes to take picture of. The right hand size there’s a vertical plants wall, actually that attracted me more. I asked the officials if it was opened for public, he told me that it was just the air-circulation system, they covered it up with the green wall to make it look less ugly..

That’s it! Hope you enjoy this series of pictures. Go see it for yourself, level 3 to level 5. During my visit the information counter told me just skip lv4, later on some usher told me it was because it was some ‘abstract art’ that many people aren’t interested. During my visit it was some Chinese paintings and calligraphy, which is actually quite okay. Further on, there’s restaurant on level 1 and rooftop, a nice place for sunset, not sure if the restaurant still opens after the museum closing timing of 7pm.
