Synopsis:

Discover more about the ornate NUS Baba House through a guided heritage tour, or explore the house on your own. You will be transported to a Straits Chinese family home in the 1920s, furnished with heirlooms from the Wee family (the previous owners of the house) and other donors. Artefacts at the NUS Baba House are displayed in their original context. In the master bedroom, for example, a set of red-and-gold bridal beds survives intact.

The third floor has been converted to an art gallery for exhibitions that explore the community and neighbourhood from different perspectives. The current project in the gallery is titled Preserve/ Conserve/Restore: Studies at 157 Neil Road and spans over a period of three years. It seeks to engage with NUS Baba House as a site for studies in urban history and the technical conservation of built heritage.
