Activities

Personal Photoshoots

Be it for your wedding or family photos, National Gallery Singapore's monumental buildings create a stunning backdrop for timeless and memorable photos and videos.

During this period, the wedding couple can remove their masks for the photo shoot, but must promptly put them back on when the photographer stops shooting and when moving around the Gallery. The photographer and crew are required to wear masks at all times.

Please note that the Padang Deck is not available for photoshoots until Tue 18 Aug. Certain areas outside of the Gallery will also be used for NDP 2020.
