Singapore City Hall Tours

Adjacent to the Supreme Court, Singapore's City Hall is a national monument previously known as the Municipal Building. The structure was designed by architects of the government and built between 1926 and 1929. During World War II, the Japanese occupied Singapore and managed civic issues from the City Hall building. Ironically, it was from here that Lord Louis Mountbatten announced Japan’s surrender in 1945. Six years later, the building received its present name to mark Singapore gaining city status, and later, it served as the site where Lee Kwan Yew declared Singapore's independence and self-governance.

Today, together with the neighboring Supreme Court, City Hall hosts the National Art Gallery of Singapore, featuring the world’s largest public collection of Singaporean and Southeast Asian art. More than 8,000 works are on display, focusing on Singapore’s culture and heritage, as well as the country's relationship with other cultures around Southeast Asia and the rest of the world.

City Hall is located in downtown Singapore and can be reached via metro by alighting at the City Hall stop.
