Description


National Gallery Singapore: Cultural and Historical Escapade!

This May, RMITAS decides to take you on a cultural and history escapade to our very own National Gallery Singapore!

Gain insights into the rich history of the former Supreme Court and City Hall buildings—landmarks of Singapore’s colonial past and journey to independence—and their transformation into an art museum. Learn about what lies beneath the Foundation Stone, the fascinating cases that judges presided over in the court rooms, and pivotal events in the nation’s history that took place within the City Hall Chamber. You will also get to see some of the Master pieces kept within the South East Asia galleries.

That’s not all! At the end of the tour, join us over lunch at the Courtyard Cafe & Lounge that showcases the best of modern Straits fare inspired by childhood memories, family recipes and years of experimentation. Experience warm hospitality in a relaxed, yet elegant environment while networking with your fellow alumni members.

Courtyard Cafe & Lounge is located at the ground floor of Singapore’s National Gallery (Supreme Court Wing) and participants will dine within its comfortable colonial inspired interiors for the afternoon.
