Free entry to museums and exhibitions
Singapore Art Museum
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.
Singapore Philatelic Museum
By using something as apparently insignificant as the humble stamp as a springboard into Singapore’s past, the Philatelic Museum is more successful at recounting the history of the country than other more wide-ranging museums. The displays – some permanent, others changing – are well presented, and interactive enough to keep younger visitors engaged. It’s also a working post office: where better to fire off a few postcards of your own?
