Singapore Art Museum

Museum in Colonial District, the Quays & Marina Bay

Formerly the St Joseph's Institution – a Catholic boys' school – SAM now sings the praises of contemporary Southeast Asian art. Currently undergoing a S$90 million facelift, this renovation is due for completion in 2021. The new, much larger, space will house the museum's permanent collection as well as those from private collections, from painting and sculpture to video art and site-specific installations.

Around the corner from the museum is its younger sibling, SAM at 8Q, which will remain open during the revamp works.
