The Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research in NUS holds the oldest and largest collection of plant and animal specimens from Southeast Asia, dating back to the 19th century.

Primarily a research facility, a public gallery was established in 2001 to showcase Singapore’s diverse wildlife. Some of these are extinct but many surprisingly can still to be found on our island! Key exhibits include a 19th century leathery turtle from Siglap. Bukit Timah’s last banded-leaf monkey, the Changi dugong, the Mandai leopard cat and the 4.4 metre king cobra from the Central Catchment Area.
