The Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum opened its doors last year and has the only permanent display of dinosaur fossils in Singapore. So I wanted to go take a look as I like dinosaurs and the way they remind us all that we humans are just another branch of evolution that hasn’t died out yet. Haha.

It’s not only dinosaurs on display but a wide arrange of botanical and zoological artefacts based around South East Asia’s geographical area. But of course, the main highlight and taking center stage in the collection are the three diplodocid sauropod dinosaur skeletons – Prince, Apollonia and Twinky.

Every half hour there is a small light show performed around the dinosaurs. Nothing spectacular but it’s a nice little touch.

It’s a pretty small museum but the collections are well displayed and evolution, biodiversity and species overviews are clearly laid out. The main ground floor has the botanical and zoological collections and upstairs is the heritage gallery where the background of the collection is presented. All in all, an interesting little experience. Don’t expect to spend an afternoon there but it’s a good excursion for an hour and a bit.

Presentation is excellent of certain artefacts. You can touch some too!
