What to expect

Step into a former cow shed, now transformed into an exhibition gallery, to discover the fascinating world of biogeography and biodiversity.

Highlights include:

  • A permanent exhibition dedicated to Alfred Russel Wallace, the English naturalist who is known as the other “father” behind the theory of evolution (besides Charles Darwin). Wallace spent eight years studying the natural history of the Malay Archipelago. This exhibition honours his contributions to natural science.
  • Interactive exhibits that cater to visitors of all ages. Explore the natural world with magnifying glasses in the Citizen Science Lab, view 3D models of local biodiversity and experience a trick-eye wall.

Other themed exhibitions are also held regularly in the gallery.

As Dairy Farm Nature Park is no longer a functioning dairy farm, there are no real cows in the park.
