Naked Museum Tour at National Gallery Singapore

There’s so much going on in this SG50 year! Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum just opened its doors last month and National Gallery Singapore will be opening in October. We managed to win passes to their Naked Museum tour and got a sneak peek of the place.

I think it’s truly amazing how they have managed to bring the Supreme Court and City Hall buildings together in a cohesive way. It’s a beautiful place and I can’t wait to see it when the artwork goes up on the walls.
