Framed by the natural foliage of Fort Canning, our Glass Rotunda is a modern architectural response to our 19th century Neo-Palladian Rotunda that has existed since the museum’s opening in 1887. The second level of the original Rotunda is home to the Goh Seng Choo Gallery, dedicated to hosting the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings – our museum’s most prized collection.

Story of the Forest draws its inspiration from this treasured collection. The installation transforms 69 drawings from the collection into three-dimensional animations, inviting you to interact up close with the wildlife and landscapes of 19th century Malaya. Through a virtual and visual landscape, the installation infuses Singapore’s colonial past with present-day modernity.
