Standing Through Time: The Arts House from the 1800s


Situated along the mouth of the Singapore River and in the heart of the Civic District, The Arts House is one of the few surviving neo-classical buildings that bear witness to Singapore’s colonial past.

Now, The Arts House storied past comes to life in a new permanent showcase. Embark on this self-guided pictorial journey back in time, the first of its kind in Singapore. Journey to the time of the building’s construction in 1826 and discover its evolving roles in the historical development of Singapore. Witness the significant changes the Arts House has undergone before its current incarnation as a home for the arts.

With maps, paintings and photographs, this new exhibition weaves together two centuries of history, people, stories and events.
