Finding this heritage villa turned museum may not be so easy for visitors as its hidden away in the laneway of a suburb named "Balestier". I suggest taking the taxi to avoid the hassle with MRT and buses. The premise of this attraction is the story of Dr Sun Yat Sen, his revolutionary activities in the Southeast Asia (SEA), the...

This is our 4th visit but this time, to peruse an exhibition entitled "A Night in Wuchang: 1911 Revolution and Nanyang" on the contributions of overseas Chinese to the last and final uprising that brought down the Qing Dynasty. We were fortunate to join a free guided tour conducted by volunteers. Such tours are available in both the English and... More

The Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall is tucked away in a quiet suburban area of Singapore and is well worth visiting for a few hours. For anyone that may not be familiar with the Chinese revolution, the Hall details Dr. Sun's activities in Singapore and Southeast Asia, and how these led up to the 1911 Chinese Revolution. The Hall... More

Went down to the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (Wan Qing Yuan) on 15/05/16. Beautiful grounds, and a very immersive experience about the trials and tribulations the revolutionaries had to go through, to found Modern China. I was pleasantly surprised to see that explanations were provided in English, and Chinese. Guided tours are also available. The Memorial Hall houses... More

I always make a point to visit this memorable place whenever I visit Singapore. It is not terribly well known . But, it was the meeting place where Dr. Sun , Father of the Republic of China and his great advisors met to plan for the uprisings that overthrown the Ching kingship. There were many remarks made by previous visitors,... More

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.
