"Ilham Alam: Nature and Healing in the Malay World" is a special exhibition that examines the ways in which various historical Malay communities have harnessed the bounty of flora and fauna to create both preventive and curative medicines. It also explores the corpus of traditional Malay medicine as a specialised form of local knowledge especially in relation to early Malay conceptualisations of the human body as well as human relationships to the natural environment.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with the Singapore Botanical Gardens and will feature items on loan from Perpustakaan Negara Malaysia (National Library Malaysia) and Jabatan Muzium Malaysia (Department of Museums Malaysia). It will also include a medicinal plant maze as well as showcases of rare 19th century Malay medicinal manuscripts and tools of trade of traditional Malay healers.
