Small wonders: Asia’s first Ant Museum in Singapore
Dated: 19 March 2020

Ants that can grow to the size of a human ear and some that can “live forever” by cloning themselves. These are just two of the 23 species of ants on display from today at Singapore and Asia’s first Ant Museum.

Encouraged by the response to an educational exhibition he organised late last year, he decided to create a permanent ant museum, together with a business partner. Besides giving visitors a glimpse of both common and rare local species, the ant museum allows them to learn about various ant behaviours. It also offers two-hour guided tours.

Singapore opens its first Ants Museum, and it’s fascinating
Dated: 18 March 2020

If the second floor of the museum showcased the variety of local ant species, the first floor showed off the creativity of local ant-keepers.

Large ant-themed paintings lined the walls, and ornate formicariums made using precious stones and gold made the place look more like an art gallery.

After the tour, I got the chance to talk to Zat Low, 36, the founder of the Ants Museum. He asked me about my colonies (he gave me advice and test tubes to start my first colony years ago), and shared about his hopes for the hobby and community.
