An Atlas of Mirrors is an exhibition. Went there with my school for a field trip. It's a great place to visit if you admire and appreciate art. (There's one part where only 18 year olds and above can enter though)

The artists are mostly from around the Singapore/Malaysia area. There are nothing from Europe or the Americas as one would expect. I, myself didn't feel engaged with the art, but that could be just me. I wasn't bowled over by the displays. One occupied a rather large room and was filled with burnt out wood pieces, supposedly resonating some ecological... More

They have nice facility. We did not get to appreciate all the artwork because of time constraints in our schedule. It is worth the visit. The art pieces were very different, very creative, entertaining and creepy at the same time. Our 9 year old daughter got to appreciate it. Locating the exhibits in an orderly manner is not that easy.... More

the main reason went to Singapore was to see this Biennale art exhibition and we were impressed. The exhibition is interesting, challenging and unique. Many installations are side specific meaning they can't move to other places which make it so unique. The building itself is a gem, it has been ver well preserved and air con so is good for... More

We have visited this museum with our 4Y son. Some rooms could be more full but we took very nice pictures of the pieces of art with our son in the middle. We had a nice moment, far from the rush of the center town.

My only criticism, is that , the galleries are spread out , on different levels ,... More

I visited the museum for the Singapore Art Biennale. It was such a great exhibition as there are deep and meaningful message in works. Love the staffs as they are well-trained so they can explain the works' concept and detail. The museum also has many lockers to deposit your belongings while enjoying works of art.

A really lovely surprise for me to learn that Singapore has an equally high quality art museum, as I normally only enjoy art museums in Amsterdam or London or New York City or Washington DC. So very happy to explore this museum, even the museum offers fun interactive ways in engaging me to learn the history of each art object.... More

The exhibition Atlas of Mirrors was on when we visited and we were fortunate to have a guided tour with a knowledgable guide. The works were certainly thought provoking and unlike the usual contemporary art one sees in galleries. The building was once a school for boys and was a contrast to the contemporary art on display. Well worth a... More
