Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research
With over 500,000 examples of animals and plants from Southeast Asia collected over the past century, the Raffles Museum holds one of the oldest and finest collections of preserved biological specimens in the region. A large number of animal specimens were inherited from the National Museum. Although essentially a research facility, a small part of the collection is on display with the aim of introducing the visitor to the poorly known, yet diverse wildlife of Singapore. Some specimens represent species that have become locally extinct. Others represent species that are rare and endangered. Come and find out what they are.
