Yishun has a new point of interest!
THE LIVE TURTLE & TORTOISE MUSEUM has shifted to ORTO in Yishun.
The new address is: 81 Lor Chencharu, Singapore 769198
THE LIVE TURTLE & TORTOISE MUSEUM welcome you to enter into a rare world of turtles and tortoises.
Here you can sense the mystery of the river turtle, the awesome power of the Alligator turtle and the majestic beauty of the Radiated tortoise.
In THE LIVE TURTLE & TORTOISE MUSEUM you can see and feel the spirit of the Sulcata Tortoise for luck, and theMalaysian Giant River Turtle (aka the wishing turtle). Be fascinated by the wondrous 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.
You can be entertained by the funny antics of Terrapin and box turtles roaming freely through the park. You can also pet and hand feed some of them. If you are in luck, you may even get a rare glimpse of nature at work as these reptiles mate.
THE LIVE TURTLE & TORTOISE MUSEUM is more than just a collection of reptiles – it is a true learning experience for all.
The Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum, is committed 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.
This place should be considered as a heritage and should definitely not be taken down. Really hoping for the best!!
If you are not from Yishun, It is a good idea to go there by Taxi as you can get dropped off right outside. Look around and then stroll through the other places in ORTO which is the general area. The nearby locations incidentally include many other children friendly places as well as restaurants. On the way back walk to the MRT ( North South Line-(Red) Khatib). Do it that way around and you will see what I mean!
The place is smaller than the old place but a lot more well-organised and some types of Turtle walk around freely in one of the areas. Take care not to treat on them but sit down with children and feed them some vegetation that you can buy on entry to do feeding.
