As Singapore's museum of contemporary art, Singapore Art Museum aims to create infinite room for everyone to think, experience and imagine. With one of the biggest collections of contemporary art from the region, SAM seeks to introduce to and inspire as wide an audience as possible through its exhibitions and range of programmes, from tours to talks and workshops. Singapore Art Museum relies on the support of generous donors to create inspiring contemporary art exhibitions that spark a lifelong interest in art, as well as to develop educational and community programmes to make contemporary art accessible for visitors of all backgrounds.
SAM has a range of programmes that are designed to deliver positive social and educational benefits to people from all walks of life. Some of these ongoing and past programmes include:
QUIET HOUR AT SAM Catering to special needs visitors of all ages, this initiative provides free transport to and from the museum, closed-door museum access, as well as customised workshop sessions
