The Lee Kong Chian Collection consists of a wide representation of Chinese materials from ancient to contemporary art, the South and Southeast Asian Collection holds a range of works from Indian classical sculptures to modern pieces; and the Ng Eng Teng Collection is a donation from the late Singapore sculptor and Cultural Medallion recipient of over 1,000 artworks.
