Less of a museum, more of a “farm”. It has been around for 20+ years and it’s lots of fun for the little ones!

Photo Reel

We were greeted by many free-roaming tortoises when we entered the compound!

We can pet the free-roaming tortoises and turtles but are not allowed to lift them as they get stressed easily!

Vegetables/pellets can be purchased on-site to feed the tortoises and turtles @ $2/pack. Outside feed are not allowed.

Good thing we visited early and the tortoises were hungry! We had so much satisfaction watching them devour the vegetables. Watch out for your fingers though!

Most of the turtles were kept in tanks. We got to see the River Turtle, the Alligator Turtle, the Malaysian Giant River Turtle and many more!

We learnt that tortoises spend most of their time on land, while turtles are adapted for life spent in water!

The pig-nosed turtle is our favourite! Its name is as cute as its looks!

Don't miss the terrapin pond by the side! The terrapins in the pond swarmed towards us when they saw us approaching with vegetables!

We were delighted to find a large swing by the pond, in a shaded spot!

If you are lucky, you can spot the turtles mating.

Cute baby turtle!

There are posters around to help you identify the turtles and tortoises!
