And about National Gallery Singapore, it was opened in November 2015 and is a brand new visual arts museum that engages, excites and inspires with the art of Singapore, Southeast Asia and the world. The Gallery will contribute to Singapore’s ambition to become a global city for the arts. Located at 1 St. Andrew’s Rd #01–01, Singapore. It’s in the heart of the Civic district, two monumental buildings, -the City Hall and the former Supreme Court-, have been refurbished and will be reborn as National Gallery Singapore.
