The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum, Singapore

#37 of 87 in Museums in Singapore
Welcomes you to enter into a rare world of turtles and tortoises.

Sense the mystery of the jungle river, the awesome power of the Alligator turtle and the majestic beauty of the Radiated tortoise. Learn the difference between the graceful, speedy Mata-mata and the muscular 60-year-old Asian Turtle of fortune; stare into the fire-red eye of the Elongata Tortoise when they mate. See and feel the spirit of the Sulcata Tortoise for luck, and the Thailand’s Golden Temple Turtle for wealth. Be fascinated by the secretive Pancake Tortoise, Golden Terrapin and the Six Legged Tortoise. Listen to the lonely noise of the Indian Star Tortoise and marvel at the strange looking Soft Shell Turtle from India.

Be entertained by the funny antics of Terrapin and Soft Shells roaming freely through the park. You can also pet and hand feed some of them. Watch these reptiles mate and if you are in luck, witness eggs hatching. Various fishes, Soft Shell and Yellow Box Turtle inhabit our large ponds.

More than just a collection of reptiles - a true learning experience for all.

  • I think it is nice place but it is a little overpriced, for the small and few variety of turtles. The place is quite well maintained. Quite a number of visitors with children for a weekdays. Perhaps.....  more »
  • A bit out of the way but we took a taxi as our 2 year old loves turtles. Spent extra at the place on salad to feed the larger ones. She really enjoyed it for about an hour but could have carried on.....  more »

  • Good value for money attraction. For $5 I got to meet with a lot of different turtles and tortoises. The gazillion terrapins roaming around the lawn were extremely friendly. Workers treat the animals especially well. All the animals are very clean, very well fed and most of them are taken them out of their enclosures for a short period to exercise and explore the lawn.
  • An amazing museum located in Chinese Gardens. Tickets cost $5 for adults and $3 for kids younger than 7 years old. At the counter you can purchase turtle feed. Loads of terrapins in the lake. One or two might even escape the lake and crawl on the garden. Feeding the turtles was extremely relaxing and kinda therapeutic. The kids loved feeding the terrapins. The museum even has several large turtles, a couple were more than 100 years old. Will definitely return.
