A lovely academic museum - i.e., with a focus on the art history of the region and exhibit curation. We saw three very interesting exhibits, but I would say only one of which was geared towards the "general public"; the other two were more appropriate for artists / art historians, although there certainly interesting material even for the casual browser.

Take the MRT to Kent Ridge, come out in front of the hospital and take the free campus A2 shuttle to the museum (the driver will help you).

The positive points of NUS Museum are (1) it's free, (2) beautiful building & interior (3) nice collection of arts, ceramics and, (4) just across from Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum so you can do both in a single half-day with time to spare.
Now for my main grouse - why is the 'NUS Museum' not about the history of National University of Singapore? NUS has a rich history from its inception as University of Malaya in 1949 after merging of King Edward VII College of Medicine and Raffles College. After the Separation of Malaysia and Singapore, UM was dichotomised into University of Malaya (in Kuala Lumpur) and University of Singapore which subsequently became NUS.
The history of NUS is intertwined with the history of Singapore from the time of British colonial rule to WWII, to the tumultuous period before independence and to the modern period with important contributions to the nation's growth.

This is the story of NUS.

The arts exhibition should be moved to the National Arts Gallery (that's just my personal opinion) and this "NUS Museum" should rightly focus on the history of NUS.

I stumbled into the museum by mistake, but found a hidden gem of Chinese art on display. I found time to see this amazing display while at a workshop at the university. Ask around for directions to this museum.
