What's New

Version 1.021

Thank you for using Gallery Explorer! We’ve exciting updates based on your feedback:

“Scan Art” – See the new Scan Art button in the app? You can now simply scan QR codes next to artworks to learn more about them! QR codes are currently installed for highlights of the Between Worlds: Raden Saleh and Juan Luna and Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay exhibitions (City Hall Wing, Level 4, Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery), which are on display until 11 March 2018. Over time, we’ll continue to add QR codes for remaining key artworks at the Gallery.

“Hold to ear” – Don’t forget, you can listen to artwork narration simply by holding the phone to your ear (no earphones required!). Combined with the Scan Art feature, we believe this makes for a pretty awesome exhibition viewing experience!

Did you know: We're working on this app every week, and we know it’s far from perfect. To help us, please let us know at GalleryExplorer@nationalgallery.sg if you encounter any issues with the app, by including issue description, your phone model and OS version.

Customer Reviews

No working with AirPods


It was quite frustrating to realize that the app doesn’t work with AirPod: the sound is played on the phone even when the headphones are connected, so I couldn’t use an audio guide. Really broke my experience.

iPhone X


Please update to iPhone X screen size. Due to the longer screen size as compared to iPhone 8 and 8plus, the top and bottom of the iPhone X screen is not utilised. They are black / blank.

Very informative
