The SBG Heritage Museum features interactive and multimedia exhibits and panels that detail the Gardens' rich heritage. The CDL Green Gallery is an extension of the Heritage Museum that displays botanical or greening related exhibits.
The Botany Centre has a visitor information centre for the southern end of the Gardens. Research facilities like the Singapore Herbarium, the Library of Botany & Horticulture and the Orchid Breeding and Micropropagation Laboratory are located here.
Be dazzled by the vibrant colours that characterise this beautiful hybrid, the national flower of Singapore. Visitors can also purchase a gold-plated souvenir piece of this flower at the RISIS Nature Gallery.
