Who knew there were real dinosaur bones right here in li’l ol’ Singapore? We had kinda heard about a museum with such a display, but hadn’t done anything about it until recently, when we made a Sunday afternoon family trip to a natural history museum out in the west of Singapore. And sure enough, it has has several dinosaur skeletons on display!
Check out them bones:
It’s a pretty cool place even aside from the dinosaurs, with lots of animal and plant exhibits:
And a dolphin skeleton too:
Oh, and plenty of space to dance:
Nyan’s favorite part was in the special exhibit on Christmas Island, which detailed how the island is completely overrun by red crabs at spawning season each year. They had an interactive light display on the floor, showing crabs crawling around; you were supposed to avoid them, but Nyan decided it would be more fun to stomp on them:
The museum is in a pretty cool building, with lots of plants and space:
And more space for dancing:
The museum is part of a university, and we strolled around the campus afterwards. Found a grassy field for students to hang out at; Nyan thought it’d be fun to run down the hill.
The simple pleasures in life for a city kid!
