Do you fancy going to a gallery during your day off this weekend? Well, this is the perfect time that you consider the National Gallery Singapore. The National Gallery Singapore finally opened its doors on November 24, 2015.


The gallery is one of a kind because it is the first museum in the world devoted to present Southeast Asian modern art. Though it took ten years to complete this gallery, it succeeded in housing the largest collection of modern art around the world. The art includes paintings from Singapore and the rest of Southeast Asia.

On its first day, it welcomed at least 4,200 visitors including walk-ins and pre-registered visitors. The very first visitors of the gallery are students. The students were a part of the project “50 Experiences for 500 Kids”. This project gives importance to underprivileged children from 7 to 12 years old. The students made it a point to join the workshops and programmes offered by the gallery.

The gallery is for everyone however from now until December 6, the gallery administrators advise people to pre-register online at their website. This is helpful for people who do not want to be inconvenienced by long lines.

Going to the library is a new activity that you can consider during your day off. With many art pieces, you will not get bored and you will realize how talented Southeast Asia is. There are different collections that you can consider but regardless of the collection, the gallery merely wants to evoke arts appreciation not only here but around the world.
