    Look out for the grey spiral staircase on the second floor near the Living Galleries. Rumored to be haunted!

    This location is placed wrongly on the 4sq map, so if you actually try to check-in from there, your are presented with a rogue entry for the Singapore National Musuem,

    If u prefer a quiet viewing of the art, avoid the guided tour at 11 am given in loud Singlish. Beware of school excursions / tours too. Probably safer to visit in afternoon.
