2. Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum’s First Weekend Open to the Public

Opening Hours, 10 am to 6 pm
Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum

It is the first weekend that the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum is open to the Public. Get to view Prince, Apollonia and Twinky, the dinosaur fossils that take centerstage at the Museum and countless other taxidermised animal specimens that show off the biodiversity found in the world. As a teaching museum, older kids would likely better appreciate what the Museum has to offer.

If you are planning a visit, don’t forget to download our special Activity Sheet. In fact, Little Day Out will be at the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum on Saturday, 2 May, with the Activity Sheets for parents and kids to do together. Complete the Activity Sheet to earn a Little Day Out Adventurer Badge, whilst stocks last.

Don’t forget to pre-book your Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum admission tickets from SISTIC before heading down too.
