Now a government building, the windows of this are painted different colours. It is quite good to look at with the Fort Canning Park behind and some not so colourful buildings around.

The building used to belong to the police and is now a government building. They have done a nice job recovering the colonial building. It definitely calls your attention as you go by it. There are sone galleries there as well.

It was refreshing and interesting to see this colorful old building. We were on our own walking tour to discover places nearby and were delightfully impressed with this building. Worth a visit just to take pictures. We did not enter.

Of course the building looks very cheerful and inviting on the outside. Ironically, the MICA building at 140 Hill Street, is mainly known for having been the Old Police building. It now houses several life-enhancing ministries: culture, youth and civilization. Don't just go by to...More

The primary purpose of this building is to house 2 Singapore government ministries, specifically the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth; and the Minsitry of Communications and Information. As such, most of the building isn't accessible to the general public. On the ground floor, however,...More

Heard that the art galleries inside this building are a "good find', I decided to go there and have a look. Knew beforehand that the galleries mostly specialize in south East Asian art and since I'm not a fan, I went in with low expectations...More
