National Art Centre

National Art Centre, one of Asia’s largest exhibition spaces, is worth a visit for the sheer beauty of the place, its architecture and facilities.

Largest exhibition space

The National Art Centre was founded in 2007 with a whopping 14,000 sq. m. of exhibition space. The Centre was designed as an ‘empty museum’ with no permanent collection or curator but with space for other artists and museums to display their collections.

The centre also hosts world-class exhibitions that feature art themes ranging from Venetian renaissance to Salvador Dali.

A glass wave

Housed in a beautifully curvy “glass wave,” the National Art Centre’s objective is to promote art in the modern society. Its large spaces allow at least 10 exhibitions to be held simultaneously. But that’s just not all – the Centre also boasts four chic restaurants and cafes. Brasserie Paul Bocuse le Musee offers affordable French cuisine while Salon de the Rond is a tea salon where visitors can enjoy a cuppa with cakes and sandwiches.

The National Art Centre enjoys immense popularity and sees a footfall of several millions each year.
