Join us for "The Last Hurrah!" Final tours of the Raffles Museum's Public Gallery, 18-22 Mar 2013

Category : news

The Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research has been located at its modern premises in the Faculty of Science only since 1986.

After 15 years, on 15th June 2001, the Public Gallery was opened and this was cause for much celebration. The museum logo of the common palm civet on a palm leaf, was unveiled that day to reflect the new emphasis on education and outreach.

Thousands came over the years, in a trickle, to the well hidden location in NUS with just the NUS Science Library for neighbours at Block S6 at Science Drive 2. Now, after 12 years of service, the Public Gallery will be closed at the end of this month. A new and larger location beckons in 2014 at the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum and the current space is needed for the intensive work of specimen preparations.

It is already partly closed wth boxes beginning to make an appearance and many of us are tied up at work. However, veteran guides could not allow this young lady to sail off with a whimper, so we have got together to celebrate her service with a final series of tours.

Lunch time and evening tours are offered from 18th to 22 March 2013. Each session is limited to just 15 people, as the space to move around the museum is very small. With a larger space beckoning, this is one farewell that need not be tearful.

So join us, for "The Last Hurrah!"
