Time Out says

Visit your favourite specimens and exhibits again when it reopens on July 16. The museum will open from Thursdays to Sundays, from 10am to 5pm.

A dinosaur fossil, a sperm whale skeleton, the only specimen of the largest species of turtle ever recorded, and an Asian Brown Flycatcher specimen collected by the famed British naturalist Alfred Wallace himself – these are just some of the highlights you’ll see at the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum. 

The gallery is perfect for anyone interested in wildlife – but not the legwork it involves. Fifteen thematic zones display specimens that run the gamut of plants, fungi, mammals, dinosaurs and more. 

Surrounding the museum are four gardens such as the Phylogenetic garden, which charts the evolution of plants and habitats. The other gardens – themed after mangroves, swamps and dryland forests – feature plants that are unique to these habitats. Bonus: entry to the gardens is free.
