About us

The Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum is the newest incarnation of the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (RMBR), and before that, the Zoological Collection of the former Raffles Museum (current National Museum of Singapore).

Based at the National University of Singapore, we house Singapore’s national and reference collection of preserved zoological specimens as well as the University’s herbarium. The specimens are used for comparative research on the flora and fauna of Singapore and the Southeast Asian region. They are the preserved physical records of the region’s biodiversity.

The museum offers outreach and education programmes for schools, corporate groups and the public. We also have an active volunteer group that organise community events and walks.
