Parkview Museum

Little India & Kampong Glam

This cavernous 1500-sq-metre contemporary art museum was opened in 2017 by the Parkview Group, owners of the iconic art deco building Parkview Square in which the museum is housed. Designed to enrich the local art scene and encourage the integration and appreciation of art in everyday life, it features contemporary artworks by international artists. Dress to impress and stop for a tipple at the extravagant lobby bar Atlas.
