Update: We visited LKCNHM on 28 April 2015. Read about our visit > on this post < !

If your kids love dinosaurs, they will probably LOVE the new Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum (LKCNHM). Look at that: 3 REAL dinosaur skeletons!! My boys will be thrilled!
LKCNHM was officially opened on 18 April 2015, but it will only be open to public from 28 April 2015. There are going to be thousands of exhibits, but the highlight clearly is the trio of 80% complete fossils of giant diplodocus. And they even have names! Prince, Apollonia and Twinky. I wonder who named them.
If you are thinking of visiting, please note that it gets a bit tricky.
#1 You need to purchase the entrance ticket from SISTIC before going.
Tickets are NOT sold at the door.
Hold on tight to your tickets after you purchase them. Lost tickets will not be replaced. So keep them in a safe place away from your kids.
#2 Ticket is for a fixed time slot.
Admission is strictly by timing. So you need to decide when you want to go and purchase the ticket for the specific time slot. Too bad if your kid decides to nap when you are there.
