History buffs will no doubt be counting their lucky stars when the Treasures of the Natural World exhibition makes its pitstop at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore on 25 November 2017.

Being the first time that London’s prestigious Natural History Museum has allowed its treasures to travel to Southeast Asia, this is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for visitors to get up-close to the museum’s 200 star objects, which are hand-picked from its extensive collection of over 80 million artefacts and specimens.

Some of these include a magnificent sabre-toothed cat, a Martian meteorite, as well as a selection of Alfred Russel Wallace’s collection of insects from his Malay Archipelago expedition to Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, to name a few.

Evolution buffs can also relish in the handwritten extract from Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species.

This impeccable array of treasures – the results of daring voyages and bold discoveries  –will no doubt encourage visitors to better understand the natural world, from the Enlightenment of the 18th century through to the present day.
