The Academy turns 20 this year. To commemorate this event, we have put together a multi-dimensional legal heritage exhibition, a first in Singapore.

Discover how our legal history has shaped Singapore’s social and economic development and explore one of Singapore’s recognisable landmarks from inside out.

Start with a tour of exhibition at the atrium of the new Supreme Court. Get an insight into the development of our legal system and its personalities through interesting facts, photos and rare artefacts and court documents, some of which date back to the 19th century. And re-live some of the most dramatic trials that took place within the high court.

Continue your walk through legal history on a guided tour to the old Supreme Court. This is a rare visual treat as visitors will be able to walk through various facilities which have never been opened to the public before, including the prison cells, the Chief Justice’s private chambers and court rooms. It will also be the last time the public will be able to view these premises before the building is closed for renovations and converted to other use.

Note: Visits to the old Supreme Court are open to guided tours only

Opening hours:
Mondays to Saturdays: 9:30 am to 6:00 pm

Guided tours* (duration: 2 hours approx):
Mondays to Fridays: 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, 2:00 pm, 4:00 pm
Saturdays: The Saturday guided tours have been fully booked. We welcome you to the exhibition at the atrium of the new Supreme Court building.
