This former Catholic boys’ school, a striking white building with two wings and long verandas, was revamped in the early 1990s when there was a policy of converting old colonial buildings into public museums. Because of its small, unusual and hidden gallery spaces, it has never held blockbuster shows. Instead, it specialises in smaller exhibitions, mostly 20th-century Asian visual art, often drawn from its own collection of South-East Asian ‘pioneer’ art.
Free entry on Fri from 6-9pm.
