Were there on 22 Nov after their reopening day. The bungalow had been renovated. There's a lift serving the 2 storey building making it very disable friendly. The display and information on the history of Sun Yat Sen and his contemporary were very interesting. Found the architect plan dd 1900 and still well preserved . Would need about at least... More

The Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall is located in the Balestier district of Singapore, which is just outside (but still nearby) the city centre (Orchard-Marina Bay area), and where you can still find some architecture that is representative of the good ol’ 60s-80s Singapore. Consequently, when I visited it today, I half expected to find an old, decrepit place... More

So this place is extremely well-done. When I came there was such a friendly guy who asked me to join the free guided tour. His name was Raymond and a bought a potentially dry topic very interesting. It started with the people of the era, so I was starting to yawn but he brought in anecdotal stories and that made... More

If you are interested in Chinese History this is a must. We delayed our visit by several hours to attend the guided tour . Australian lady named Merry did a great job of interpreting exhibits so that we got the most from our visit.

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
