The art museum is closed until 17Nov as the newest installation is being set up. I believe the new exhibit goes through December some time but if you're traveling in the next two weeks, save yourself the trip.

Our friends took us with a guided tour. Fantastic and definitely worth a visit. The guides are volunteers and very enthusiastic. The building itself is worth a visit as it was an old colonial building.

The main building is closed for renovations but the museum still exhibits in a smaller space - adults S$6. Interesting interactive installations by Asian artists and some great short films. Allow 1 to 2 hours for current exhibits.

Four or five floors packed with art displays by artists from all over the world. It was time well spent. Very hands on. I understand that it is a temporary facility at the moment. The main old colonial building is being revamped. Take the kids.

6$ paid admission for adults and 3$ for students at the SAM 8Q. It's not big enough. I found 7 hidden art works of small mushrooms at the corridor, hall, stairs, doorway and so on. The place is like play ground with creative storytelling activities...More

You can go around the corner to 8Q, but this is rarely worth doing. SAM's main building is worth visiting when open, for both the art and the old school (1850s) former Catholic school it resides in. Check the website first though, as the security...More

It was Museum Day, so the entrance was free. I'm glad, as I would have been disappointed if we'd paid. We found the layout very confusing and the art average at best. We would not rush back.

Hi Solely because we were staying very close by. What we didn't know at the time was that about half of it was closed for some reason. If you have young kids or just a kids heart the associated children's museum is just... More

Pretty much the same impression as Gilman Barracks (well, the bigger building up the hill, on the left), like a re-purposed building, like a work in progress, suitable for certain art exhibits, quite neat, but I would say it... More
