Gelam Gallery STB Discover Singapore
Gelam Gallery is Singapore’s first outdoor art gallery

1. Gelam Gallery

Over 30 seasoned and up-and-coming artists have covered the walls of back alleys in Muscat Street, Kampong Glam, which is billed as the first outdoor art gallery in Asia. Signs accompany each work, giving more information about the artist behind it.

Follow the newly unveiled murals at Katong Joo Chiat to find out about the history of this vibrant heritage neighbourhood.

2. Museum @ My Queenstown

This community museum weaves a fascinating story of the area where the first Housing Development Board flats were built, back in the 1950s. The collection of artefacts, which includes 2,000 photographs, took nine years to compile.
