Republic of Singapore

The Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum has its origins in the Raffles Museum which was founded in 1849 as a result of an idea mooted by Sir Stamford Raffles, an eminent naturalist. LKCNHM inherited the natural history collection from its predecessor, the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (RMBR), whose collection stems from the old Raffles Museum that was renamed the National Museum of Singapore. Established on 1 April 2014, LKCNHM is now part of the Faculty of Sciences (FoS) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) is built on the academic strengths of various faculty and postgraduate researchers of FoS involved in research on various aspects of biodiversity, and the facilities and personnel of the animal and plant collections.
