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 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.

At the Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum, we are commited to the health of our environment and to every turtle and tortoise 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!
