The Singapore Botanic Gardens Seed Bank, is housed in one of the largest of the five colonial-style houses within the former Raffles College at Cluny Road. It is an important conserved building in Singapore's first UNESCO's heritage site.
Opened on 13 July 2019, the Singapore Botanic Gardens Seed Bank is a conservation, research and education facility in the Singapore Botanic Gardens that focuses on conserving plant species by preserving the seeds and germplasm of plants in Southeast Asia. The Seed Bank has an interpretive gallery that introduces the Seed Bank and explains its importance to plant conservation and research in Singapore and the region, as well as a seed dispersal garden with seed sculptures showing the different seed dispersal mechanisms.
