The Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum is one of the newest yet oldest museum in Singapore. Opened in April 2015, the museum inherits much of its natural history collection from its predecessor, the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (RMBR), whose collection of course stems from the original Raffles Museum that was renamed the National Museum of Singapore in 1965.
The exhibition gallery of the museum is divided into 2 floors of about 2,500 sq m. The Biodiversity Gallery located at the lower first floor houses fifteen thematic zones, such as Mammal Zone, Arthropod Zone and Plant Zone, each showcasing specimens from the museum’s collection. The star attraction in this gallery is the three sauropod fossils at the Dinosaur Zone. The Heritage Gallery located at the upper first floor includes five exhibit zones, presenting an account of the museum’s development and traces the relationship between Singapore’s development and natural history, all bearing rich historical and heritage values of Singapore.
Come and be enthralled by the myriad of colours and forms of plants and animals in 16 different thematic zones from PLANTS and AMPHIBIANS to MAMMALS and DINOSAURS.
