Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum

Singapore's first and only natural history museum, the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum is home to over 560,000 catalogued lots and over a million specimens from throughout the region.

Museum highlights include the three diplodocid sauropod fossils which were among the largest and heaviest animals to ever walk on land. More than 80% complete, two of the skeletons even come with skulls – a rarity as far as sauropod dinosaurs fossils are concerned.
