Red Dot Design Museum

Colonial District, the Quays & Marina Bay

After bidding farewell to its former bright red Chinatown location, the Red Dot Museum's new home is sleek, modern and smack on the banks of Marina Bay. The museum showcases winning design pieces from the international Red Dot Awards: Design Concept. The exhibition is continuously being updated and is well worth a gawk. Find unique gifts at the onsite design store.
