It is a contemporary workmanship exhibition hall in Singapore, Southeast Asia and Asia. Housed in a reestablished nineteenth century mission school, it opened in 1996 as the primary workmanship exhibition hall in Singapore.
The gallery, at that point known as an artistic work historical center, was conceived out of a task by the National Museum to set up a five-gallery region in the city. The other four exhibition halls that make up the area are known as the Singapore History Museum, Asian Civilisations Museum, People's Museum and the Children's Museum. The Fine Arts Museum venture started with the rebuilding of the previous St. Joseph's Institution building.
