LKCNHM5 e-Celebrations Programme POSTED ON August 28, 2020 BY Aw Jeanice 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.
