The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum, Singapore

#33 of 80 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.

  • 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.
  • The Turtle & Tortoise Museum is really well worth place to visit. It's in the middle of the beautiful Chinese gardens, which has a free entry and gives a little taste of Chinese architecture, scenery and culture. The Turtle museum it self has a 5 dollar entrance fee. It looks a bit chabby, but the content is really cool. I had no idea that there was so many completely different awesome, but weird looking types of turtles. Saw many creatures I've never seen before. Really cool
  • It was okay. Good for kids. The turtles were all caged though 😿. There was a $10 donation per pax..And turtle food must be purchased from inside for $2 (10pcs of short beans). The front desk girl is very friendly and was helpful.
  • One last visit before they are moving to a new place. Do take note on the entry fee. I will say it's always worth the penny, to let the kids have the experience.
