A great man's life tribulations vividly and interestingly recorded in the Nanyang Memorial! Carefully restored to her glory days, the majestic villa showcases the heroes of the warring days and their courage & struggles during the turbulent years. Nestled in the Zhongshan Park, this is a lesser known but equally important place to visit for tourists and locals alike.

Originally a private home that was offered by Teo Eng Hock to Dr Sun Yat Sen to establish his revolutionary activities in South East Asia. The museum is currently undergoing some renovation which should be completed within the next few months. Still worth going as the Burmese Buddha Temple is next door. Entrance fee of 4 dollars. Some interesting photos... More

I went to Dr. Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall on 4 May 2014. The hall opened at 10am and I was the first visitor that day. When I entered to the reception, I showed my room card and had free entrance. The hall contained 2 floors. The ground floor was divided into 2 parts. The first part was introducing... More

Not many nowadays know about the pivotal role Dr Sun Yat Sen played in overthrowing feudal China and revolutionizing the behemoth in 1912. And not enough people know about or visit the revamped Sun Yat Sen museum in Singapore. Centrally located (about 10 mins by car from Orchard Road), the museum is housed in a 113 year old heritage building... More

Dr Sun initially thought a reformation to create a constitutional monarchy was right for China, however after witnessing the many humiliating concessions given to foreign powers after each war, he changed to support a revolutionary movement to make China a republic, as he deemed the Qing court too corrupt for any improvements. He traveled overseas and raised funds, and made... More

We went to visit the memorial hall on a public holiday. Entrance for foreigners on that day was free. The memorial hall is not very big about two storeys high and easy enough to navigate around. It is beautifully kept and the exhibits are interesting if you have an interest for Chinese history. Several other sights nearby like the Burmese... More

My husband wanted to visit this museum for a while now. The grounds were very nice with a lovely looking house which is the museum. There was heaps of information on Sun Yat Sen and his colleagues. I didn't know anything about Sun Yat Sen and I found the information interesting. I also enjoyed the lovely iron wall with beautiful... More

This museum has a superb record of the visits to China of 'The Father of Modern China'. There are superb photos of Sun Yat Sen (aka Zhong Shan) and the people he associated with in Singapore in their organising to overthrow the ailing Qing dynasty at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The building is itself worth visiting... More
