‘NHB should not delegate to NUS the duty of conserving and showcasing our natural history heritage.’

MS JANE LIM: ‘The National Heritage Board (NHB) should strongly consider a Singapore Museum of Natural History in planning to build new museums in the Civic District. The museum districts in Washington and London have immensely popular museums of natural history. NHB can work in partnership with the National University of Singapore (NUS) so the public can easily access our valuable heritage. It should not delegate to NUS the duty of conserving and showcasing our natural history heritage. I have fond childhood memories of the flora and fauna exhibits at the old National Museum of Singapore. Our kids should grow up knowing the natural beauty of our urban city state.’
