Red Dot Design Museum
Free entrance on the first weekend of month
What we say:
The "red dot" is a prestigious design prize and Singapore is the only city outside of Europe with a permanent museum to showcase dot-winning products.
Many of the items on display are mundane objects like suitcases and underwear with exceptionally pretty design, but others like shoes that convert to rainboots or a pregnancy test for blind women show truly outside-the-box thinking.
Unless you're a design buff the price of admission probably isn't worth it, but entrance is free on the first weekend of the month when the museum hosts an artists' market.
The red building, which dates back to 1928, is hard to miss — it used to be a police barracks.
