4. Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum

 

Details:

Dates: Everyday, All year

Address: 2 Conservatory Dr, National University of Singapore, 117377

Suitable for: 7 years onwards

Description:

As much as the museum maintains its focus as a specimen-based biodiversity research institute with a strong emphasis on taxonomy, systematic and conservation, it will continue to grow new areas and use novel technologies like those associated with genetics, bioinformatics and imaging. The research collection, whilst maintaining its Singaporean-Malaysian strength, will take on an increasingly Southeast Asian perspective to be a useful museum for comparative biodiversity. This is necessary, as modern science cannot be constrained in national “silos”. As such, the research collection will be enlarged and enhanced, with expanded regional collaborations and expeditions, more broad-based research studies, intensive studies of groups for which the museum has resident expertise, increased digitization of resources, cyro-preservation of key-material.
