Resplendent with beautiful art pieces from the island, National Gallery Singapore has two permanent galleries - DBS Singapore Gallery and UOB Southeast Asia Gallery. If you’ve already seen these, you can feast your eyes on fresh pieces displayed in their various exhibitions. These exhibitions are hosted by the gallery in association with reputed museums of the world; some of them being Centre Pompidou, Tate Britain, and Musée d'Orsay. This means you’ll have the finest international art collection to look at and admire.

Although the National Gallery of Victoria has temporarily shut its doors until June 30th, you can still pay a visit through one of their exciting virtual tours. Enjoy a 3D view of their current exhibits, Keith Haring | Jean-Michel Basquiat: Crossing Lines and KAWS: Companionship in the Age of Loneliness, along with a detailed audio transcript. They also have a VR option, if you’ve got Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear VR set up, so you’ll feel like you’re really there! Keep your kids occupied with free e-books, and activity sheets while you enjoy the tour.

An amazing collection of art here!
They also have hold different exhibitions throughout the year, so it's good to check in once in a while. I just went recently to see a GREAT collection at the Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay exhibitions (Monet, Renoir, Manet, Pissarro and Cézanne!) Nice, relaxing, informative way to spend an afternoon.

Of course - LOVELY building too.
