The caretakers took great efforts to restore this building and made it air-conditioned, as compared to the past when it wasnt. Although admission charges are required these days, this shall deter one to learn this significant part of China's history.

We are not ethnic Chinese and not even Asiatic but what was on display here was excellent. We knew, of course, who Sun Yat Sen was and also what, in general, he had done for China but this filled in a lot of the background. It was an interesting hour especially listening to the guides giving school parties information in... More

If you stay close by in a hotel, but I would not travel there specifically if you are not really interested into Chinese history. The building is very nice, but the exhibition a bit try and heavy on photographs.

This small museum is located next to the Burmese Buddhist Temple and is about a 10 minute walk from the Toa Payoh MRT. The building itself it quite an attractive structure and is in good condition, Inside is an interesting history of Sun Yat Sen and his struggles to overthrow the monarchy in China. The displays are well sign-posted with... More

It is a place of history which is well-kept and maintained. I really enjoyed the display there. The written pavements from the park towards Memorial Hall is a nice surprise. Great for people who are interested in history. Very quiet place, few visitors around. I appreciate that Singapore government keeps it well.

If you have a chance, get to the Wan Quing Yuan festival, usually late November to early December. Each year has a special theme and the performances, workshops and even museum entry are all free. This year the theme was film and photography. We attended a great workshop, as well as enjoying the museum itself. There is no food in... More

The building is well conserved, however as a museum, it fails. as a grand old mansion, there isn't enough about how the old homes were lived in or looked like- no kitchen, no cafe and it is off the beaten track for tourists.

For anybody who is interested in the history of China as well as that of Singapore this museum, set in a beautiful mansion, is a must. Until I visited I had not realised just how important a role overseas Chinese communities - most notably in Singapore - had played in the financing and organisation of the revolution that brought down...

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
