Formerly the Supreme Court and City Hall, this behemoth of an art museum – it’s the largest of its kind in Singapore – focuses on Southeast Asian art from the 19th century up until today. And with several kid-friendly exhibits and installations, the little ones have lots to check out, too. Round off the day by having a cocktail at the museum's rooftop bar Smoke & Mirrors, which overlooks the Singapore skyline.
Singapore's culture scene is wildly underrated, more so than most would think. This is especially since it's home to some of the best museums and galleries in the region.
