Dear supporters, during this time, the museum remains open, but group entries will be limited to 5 pax per group, and only fully vaccinated visitors will be allowed entry (Children under 12 years old need not be vaccinated, visitors waiting for 14 days after 2nd jab can enter as well). This is to protect our small team that takes care of the museum and the turtles, as well as to protect you.
