50 Experiences for 500 Kids // Outing with Townsville Primary School // 13 Nov 15 // Kids from Townsville Primary embarked on an adventure, being paleontologists for a day, learning all about dinosaurs and exotic animals at the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum.

The Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum (LKCNHM), Singapore’s first and only natural history museum, was officially opened by Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam, Singapore President and Chancellor of the National University of Singapore (NUS) on 18 April 2015. The museum, which traces its roots to the original Raffles Museum of 1878, is the oldest such institution in the region. It was opened up the public from 28 April 2015.

What a humongous flower! It’s the Rafflesia flower, which is the world's largest, the heaviest, the rarest and the one of the most stinky flowers in the world. It grows to 1 metre wide and weighs about 10 kgs.

Taking centrestage are the three highly anticipated diplodocid sauropod fossils. Believed to be part of a herd or even a family, they are especially rare due to their almost complete skeletons. These massive dinosaurs dominate the main gallery, showcasing the diversity and history of life on Earth, as well as serving as a reminder of extinction events and how life has evolved.

The main gallery, comprising 15 zones, tracks the history of life on earth, among them green plants, fungi, molluscs, arthropods, birds and mammals. Other sections demonstrate the evolution of terrestrial vertebrates from “fish” and why birds are surviving “dinosaurs”.
