LKCNHM5 e-Celebrations Programme

This year marks our fifth year of the Lee Kong Chian Natural Museum (LKCNHM) in the National University of Singapore.

As we reflect back on the various milestones, achievements and challenges faced over the past five years since our official opening on 18 April 2015, we are grateful to the support of NUS, our museum donors, members, partners, friends, volunteers and visitors, without which we would not have made it this far.

In commemoration of the fifth anniversary, we invite everyone to join us virtually for our LKCNHM5 e-Celebrations on 5 September 2020 (Sat), from 10 am to 4:15 pm! An exciting line-up of web-talks by our staff and a live broadcast of the celebratory activities at the museum await you. Read on to find out more and register early!


The virtual programme will be held over Zoom, and as there will be limited capacity, we encourage you to register early here:

There will also be a lucky draw for participants with attractive prizes to be won, and winners will contacted by email.
