Located on the campus of the National University of Singapore (NUS) , this trio of small art museums holds some remarkably fine collections. Ancient Chinese ceramics and bronzes dominate the ground-floor Lee Kong Chian Art Museum , while one floor up, the South and Southeast Asian Gallery showcases paintings, sculpture and textiles from the region. Above it, the Ng Eng Teng Gallery is dedicated to Ng Eng Teng (1934–2001), one of Singapore's foremost artists, best known for his figurative sculptures.

At the time of writing, the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum (formerly the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research) was due to re-open in its striking, purpose-built building in early 2015. The museum is directly opposite the NUS Museum.
