Description

The 240sqm Singapore Botanic Gardens Heritage Museum will be located in Holttum Hall, which is next to Botany Centre in the Tanglin Core of the Gardens. Built-in 1921 to serve as the Director of Gardens' office and laboratory, the two-story building has been designated as an Urban Redevelopment Authority conservation building. This was where Mr. Eric Holttum, the Gardens' Director from 1925 to 1949, developed the innovative orchid breeding technique which enabled the efficient production of healthy seedlings in sterile flasks from hybrid seed. This technique, which is still used today, was a key factor that stimulated thriving orchid industries throughout the region then.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens Heritage Museum will feature interactive and multimedia exhibits and panels that detail the Gardens' rich heritage. (Please refer to Factsheet for more information on the Gardens' heritage). Historical items that will be displayed include old photographs, artifacts, plant specimens, rare botanical books and botanical paintings that date back to the early 19th century. Oral recordings of Ridley during his 100th birthday will also be integrated into an interactive display. The exhibits in the Museum are supported by CDL through the Garden City Fund, a registered charity, and the institution of public character established by the National Parks Board.
