The Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum 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
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
At the Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum, we are commited
to the health of our environment and to every turtle and
large and small. This philosophy has given us a rare and
precious chance to rescue and rehabilitate the rarer species.
The Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum is a place for family
fun and excitement. We have more than 200 turtles and tortoises
from over 60 different species. The petting corner allows
you to get up close with some of these turtles and tortoises.
It is a common Chinese belief that turtles and tortoises
represent longevity and good fortune. The museum collects
and showcases all sorts of objects inspired by turtles and
tortoises. To date, the museum has thousands of toys, ornaments,
tableware, and even furniture created in celebration of our
shelled friends. We also conduct special guided tours – do
ask for it.

A Wonder To Behold
A lifetime experience not to be missed! View the incredible
two-headed, six-legged turtle. Abandoned and in critical condition
when found at our courtyard, we nursed her back to health and
named her "Double Happiness". She has the potential
to grow to a length of one meter!
