Discover the natural world of yore through stories … over 150 materials, many on public display for the first time.

Singapore’s natural environment, as we know today, is the result of a long history of knowledge gathering, plantation agriculture and attempts at rehabilitation. Modelled after our changing natural landscapes, the exhibition features an array of natural history books, botanical prints, plantation photographs and maps from various collections, showcasing how the natural world has shaped the different ways local, colonial, and migrant communities lived within and transformed the natural landscape.
