Singapore Art Museum

Getting there, what to see, food

More affectionately known as SAM, the Singapore Art Museum aims to preserve and present the art histories and contemporary art practices of Singapore and the Southeast Asian region. At the moment, it boasts the world’s largest collection of Southeast Asian artworks.

Besides its native permanent exhibitions, the SAM frequently co-curates exhibitions and shows with other museums in the region and around the world. It also has ties to some of the world’s best known museums like the Louvre museum, Guggenheim and Shanghai Art museum. As Singapore rapidly establishes herself as a global centre for the arts, such international ties serve to channel ideas and knowledge to invigorate an ever expanding arts scene.

With its exciting array of both current local exhibitions and international travelling exhibitions, the Singapore Art Museum more than caters for visitors seeking a great afternoon of art appreciation.

Drive yourself to Singapore Art Museum

Why not hire a car while you’re in Singapore and visit the Singapore Art Museum in your own time. Roads are easy to follow and great to drive on. Hire cars are modern. Tourists can drive using a valid foreign licence and an International Driving Permit (IDP), issued in your home country. If you come from one of the Asian Nations you can drive in Singapore without an international permit.
