Here’s the beauty of the Forest Discovery Centre: you can enjoy the offerings no matter the month, weather, or time of day, as long as it’s within the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ opening hours, of course. 

Additionally, do note that the Forest Discovery Centre is closed every last Monday of the month. 

While it’s typically not crowded, we find it best to visit in the morning if you want to enjoy the exhibits at a more leisurely pace, as there are only a few visitors during that time.
