The former Supreme Court and City Hall of Singapore was recently redesigned as the National Gallery, now housing art exhibitions by South East Asian artists. With its enthralling history as the landmark for the judiciary and government, the National Gallery is a place worth visiting for sure!
Because entrance to the National Gallery is free for Singaporeans (for our overseas friends you can check out the price list here), we certainly took our time and visited the Gallery two days in a row at different times, capturing a plethora of images. We should point out that even though Singaporeans get free entry, one would still need a ticket to walk around the premises (we had to learn it the hard way, albeit from a friendly security guard).
As law students, we are obviously intrigued by the architecture of the Gallery. We were admittedly more interested its historical significance rather than the art galleries and indeed, there was much more to see in the Gallery’s architecture.
We have a picture of how one of the courtrooms in the former Supreme Court looked like. Here’s a lovely image of Sandra in her younger days, pretending to be sombre-looking officials:

Due to a lack of proper planning, we were chased out close to 7pm which is the closing time of the Gallery. Furthermore we did not manage to walk through the premises, so we decided to come back again the next day!
As always, we were creative with our instant films, and you can check out our prints below:
The National Gallery is open daily and you can check out their opening hours here; we recommend spending a full day enjoying the architecture, history and the modern exhibitions!
