About the Museum
As a university museum, NUS Museum’s mission is to actively facilitate intellectual and cultural life within and beyond the University. With a distinct focus on Asia, the Museum contributes to and facilitates the production, reception, and preservation of knowledge through collections development and curatorial practice, developing partnerships within NUS, the cultural and heritage industry, and the global knowledge community. Since 2004, the NUS Museum has been part of NUS Centre For the Arts. The Museum has over 8,000 artefacts and artworks across four collections, the South & Southeast Asian Collection, the Lee Kong Chian Collection, the Ng Eng Teng Collection and the Straits Chinese Collection, located at the NUS Baba House.
