Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum information
If examining stuffed animals and creatures preserved in large jars gets your pulse racing, the small Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, on the NUS campus, will give your adrenal glands a workout.
There are stuffed and preserved examples of rare and locally extinct creatures, including a 4.42m king cobra (clubbed to death when it slithered into the Singapore Country Club) and a banded leaf monkey (mauled by dogs…do we sense a theme here?) eerily floating in a tank, arms held up by strings.
It’s not exactly on the tourist trail, but it’s worth the trip if you combine it with the NUS Museums nearby. Catch bus 95 from Buona Vista MRT.
