Raffles Museum News was the first museum blog and would be populated by some 400 blog articles posted between 2004 – 2007 when the museum was known as the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research. The site featured news about many interesting events, visitors, activities and animal encounters. So it is helpful to that this repository is available online.
The blog was hosted at a bespoke blog engine on the Faculty of Science server. The server was retired in 2016 and since the blog engine was no longer upgraded, this WordPress domain was setup. The blog posts were manually migrated in 2022 and this site was made public on 7th January 2023.
