A visit on the opening day of the treasures of the natural world at the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands yields interesting insights that complement the recent visits to the zoological gardens around Singapore.
It is interesting to look at the specimens on display and co-relate to the animals and birds in the zoo. There is a relatively immersive collection of specimens from animals and plants alike on display. Some of which are perhaps on display for the first time.
Here are some photos of items on display at the exhibition which is divided into 5 sections. Just to highlight some interesting pieces on display, while the exhibition will also showcase some never seen before items from the archives of the Natural History Museum. This is surely something worth your time to visit, and they are only here for a very limited time.
1. Building Nature’s Treasure House
2. Treasures of the Mind
3. Treasures of Exploration
4. A Treasures of Life are Everywhere
6. A Museum for a Modern World
The displays bring about a rich history of biodiversity and the importance of conservation into the conversation. There is so much going on in the living planet which we live in that we are either preserving or exploiting it. There is perhaps only this much or this too little we can do. But every little effort is not too little to heed the lessons learn from mother nature. For we grow as we learn – that is what I took away from this exhibition.
Along with it comes the fold-able activity of an origami Tiger or Orang Utan; which you can fold it and hag on the feature wall provided or simply bring them home.
While you are catching the exhibition there don’t forget to visit the Future World and the free WWF-Into the Wild exhibit if you have not done so.
