What we say: 3.5 stars

Singapore's largest university has a diverse collection of more than 7,000 pieces of Asian art and artefacts.

The Chinese, Indian and Southeast Asian collections can be seen at the main campus in a traditional museum set-up with informative signs, but the Straits Chinese antiques are housed in the Baba House, a restored Peranakan mansion in the Tanjong Pagar conservation district, which is open by appointment only.

Guided tours are available Saturday afternoons or by appointment.
