NUS Museum

The NUS Museum focuses on regional Asian art and culture, and leverages on its collection and curatorial practices to provide resources for teaching and research in support of NUS' mission to transform the way people think and work through education, research and service.

The roots of the NUS Museum can be traced to the establishment of the University of Malaya Art Museum in 1955. Its collection of over 8,000 artefacts and artworks are divided across four collections: the Lee Kong Chian Collection, the South and Southeast Asian Collection, the Ng Eng Teng Collection and the Straits Chinese Collection, housed at NUS Baba House.
