Let’s cut to the chase: 150-million-year-old diplodocid sauropod dinosaur skeletons with funny names which probably meant a lot but lost on the lesser human being… Yours truly. I only remembered one was called Apollo, maybe. However, when you are face to face with three huge dinosaur skeletons and suspended bones of flying pterodactyls of, well, dinosaur proportions, names pale in comparison.

Amazing.

Dinosaurs

Growing up with two brothers gave me a really good Dinosaurian education. Thanks to this, I can tell the differences between the diplodocus and brachiosaurus. Wow. I’ll go far with that knowledge. But I digress. Here are the dinosaurs!

Sea Monsters

I have always reserved a healthy amount of fascination for sea creatures, besides loving to eat seafood.

Precious Collections

The second floor holds one of the most precious collections of Singapore’s Natural History. Although much smaller, it is not to be missed! Among the items, I found the detailed and yet stiff drawings by William Faquhar, and meticulously preserved specimens by Alfred Wallace really interesting. Tip: Open the cupboards and drawers!
