Visit the NUS Baba House

  Discover more about the ornate NUS Baba House through heritage tours and exploring the house on your own! 157 Neil Road was once the ancestral home of the Wee family who descended from shipping merchant Wee Bin. It was restored and opened in 2008 as the NUS Baba House, a heritage project which supports the study of architectural conservation, urban and social histories and cultural hybridity.

Today, pieces of furniture, as well as portraits and household objects, are displayed in a historical context, to suggest ways the material culture of the Straits Chinese may be read in relation to ethnicity, beliefs and the colonial setting.
