Interesting history and eclectic European architecture
Feb 2019 • Couples
An interesting attraction along Avenida de Sidónio Pais at the Rua Silva Mendes turnoff of is Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial House (free entry). Here you can learn local history related to the Founder of the Republic of China within an architecturally interesting property. Opening hours are 10am to 5pm (closed on Tuesdays).

The property was built for Sun Yat-Sen's first wife in 1912 and is an eclectic building taking elements of various European architecture. The exterior is peculiar if nothing else. The interior is more traditional with wooden floors, a courtyard and a very nice staircase.

Within the property, you'll find probably 8-9 rooms you can enter, each with history about the life of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen and his time in Macau. Several rooms are furnished with period furniture. You'll also find a bronze statue of this important historical figure to the right side of the Memorial House.

In the end, this is more a place to visit for history buffs and those with an inkling and interest in architecture for which this building is one of the most interesting historical properties to view in Macau.

Interesting and Surprising find
Dec 2018 • Solo
Came across this Memorial House / Museum of sorts. Admission was free (at least while I was there) and it was interesting to walk around a take a look. Not saying it is super amazing, but for sure interesting and historic. And as I wanted to see Macau (not casinos) this definitely added flavor to the experience.

Memorial to Dr. Sun Yat-Sen in Macau
Apr 2018 • Solo
The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial House is an interesting attraction on Rua Silva Mendes near Flora Garden. This is where Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, who is considered the founder of the Republic of China, lived during his time in Macau.

Here you find an interesting building which combines various forms of European architecture. Within the house there are several rooms set up with exhibitions regarding the life and political history of Sun Yat-Sen. There is a bronze statue of the of the late political leader outside the building as well.

You can have a quick look-see of the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial House on your way to/from nearby Tap Seac Square, Lou Lim Ioc Garden and Flora Garden.

Very interesting exhibit and well-kept historical house. Informative enough and yet you're allowed to simply take it in peacefully.

Combine with something else
Feb 2017 • Couples
I have been to similar Sun Yat Sen museums in different places around the world and quite frankly, it isn't terribly exciting but might be fascinating to someone who is into Chinese history. But the main thing is that it is free and you can easily combine this with the nearby Lou Lim Ieoc Garden and a quick free stroll here doesn't hurt.

Personal - The only house with letters from his children
May 2017 • Solo
While I've been to Dr Sun's memorial in Taiwan itself and his house here in Singapore, I've never seen a more personal house. This is the only one I know that featured letters from his daughter and son. It showed how much he is adored by his family and how much this place is more a family home than a resistance base.

While most of the rooms are bare, its good to read the plaques that accompany the artefacts as well as the documentary boards on the corridors. Aside from his children's letters, a unique animal he caught was also on display. What was also unique to this house was how it looked more Moorish or mosque like rather than your typical colonial houses.

Third stop on the 'An Experiment of Creativity' Walking Route in Macau
Feb 2016 • Solo
Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial House (free entry) is the 3rd attraction included on the Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) sponsored 'An Experiment of Creativity' self-walking tour, which covers the interesting and less visited area around St. Lazarus District in Macau.

The 'An Experiment of Creativity' starts at the Kun Iam Temple on Avenida do Coronel Mesquita before making way to Avenida do Sidonio Pais for a visit to Flora Garden and the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial House.

This house is where the important historical figure, Dr. Sun Yat Sen stayed during his time in Macau near the end of the 19th century. The building is architecturally interesting, featuring Neo-classical, Rococo and even Islamic design and features. In addition to the peculiar yet pleasing design of the property, here you will find historical accounts of the life of Dr. Sun Yat Sen, particularly related to his role as the founding father of the Republic of China.

The Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial House is open from 10am to 5pm daily (Closed on Tuesdays) and can be comfortably seen in 5-10 minutes if you only fancy a look-see of the property. If you want to visit the museum collection property, best to allow 30-45 minutes of a more complete visit and experience. Then you can make way to the next place to visit as part of the 'An Experiment of Creativity' heritage trail.

Note: Visit the MGTO website page for the 'An Experiment of Creativity' self-guided walk if you want to learn more information about the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial House, other attractions on this trail and to download maps of the trail and St. Lazarus area of Macau.

Note: Other attractions included on the 'An Experiment of Creativity' heritage trail include the Kun Iam Temple, Flora Garden, Lou Lim Ieoc Garden, Tap Seac Gallery, Tap Seac Square and St. Lazarus Church.

Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall
Mar 2016 • Friends
In March 6, I went to Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall with my friends to have a information research since we have a report about him. So, after the lunch in McDonald's, we got on the bus and started to have a short trip. It is my first time to go to Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, it is not large but also not small. Dr. Sun Yat Sen is a museum located in São Lázaro, Macau, China where former family members and relatives of Sun Yat-sen, the 'Father of Modern China' used to live. The House bears witness to his short but significant stay in Macau in the early 20th century where Macau serve as the starting point for Dr. Sun's travels around the world; it also act as an important venue in which he conducted revolutionary activities and finally as the ideal place he chose to settle his family in later years. So he is a very famous person in China, everyone should know about him because he had done a lots of significant things to help Chinese in history. After this small trip, I have more knowledge about him and hope that I can go to here very soon to commemorate this important person.
