National Geographic brings to Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay, a series of four exciting and educational exhibitions set to blow the minds of children and adults.
Discover interesting facts through interactive stations about the world around us – from the weirdest in nature and stunning flowers, to the ambition of a waste less world and plants that devour meat.
The first in the series of exhibitions launches today – Weird But True! This exhibition explores facts taken from National Geographic Kids magazine that boggles the mind. It dissects the strangest and weirdest facts and occurrences in science, food, pop culture and more.
Some Weird but True! facts on display are:
- Vanilla comes from a kind of orchid.
- About 420 million years ago, mushrooms grew taller than giraffes.
- A palm tree is not a tree—it’s more closely related to grass.
Spanning 290 sq m, Weird But True! and all remaining exhibitions will be held in Cloud Forest at Gardens by the Bay. Weird But True! will run till 31 July 2022.
These four exhibitions will also feature flora from Gardens by the Bay and come complete with captivating, larger than life photos, colourful graphics and catchy texts, set to imprint wonderful memories and knowledge into the bright young minds of tomorrow. These photographs are a curated collection from National Geographic’s extensive library.
Also, on display will be works from select National Geographic Explorers.
