I have always admired Dr Sun Yat Sen, the person who dared to initialise and carry out a revolution to overthrow the Qing Dynasty ruling China for more than 100 years. Not a small feat. For SG 50, a friend informed there was a launch bringing in more personal items belonging to Dr Sun's family members and entry was free,... More

As we were staying at the nearby Ramada I downloaded the Heritage Trail app for the Balestier Road area and discovered this beautifully restored building and museum. The bronze sculpture wall is lovely with some many memories portrayed. Inside is the story of Sun Yat Sen and his involvement in the Chinese revolution. Really interesting and I just loved the...

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...
