Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, Singapore, Singapore


4.5 (89 reviews) Spent Ranking #129 in Singapore Historic Sites

Wan Qing Yuan

Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall is housed in a tastefully decorated two storey villa off Ah Hood Road. Entry into the museum is free of charge for Singaporeans and guests of nearby Ramada & Days hotel. But there is no charge for everyone if you only visit the house outer compound. Inside you can find artifacts, photos, and newspapers describing Sun Yat Sen's revolutionary activities that led to the overthrow of the Qing dynasty and the establishment of the Republic of China. My favorite part is the bedroom cum study where Dr Sun spent most of his mornings reading and writing letters.

    Off the beaten track but worth the trip and time.
    A historically significant site given the importance of the position China has in the geo political sphere today. This will enable an appreciation of the circumstance that led to the end of the last imperial dynasty in China and the revolutionary fervor that was led by Dr Sun. It wasn’t an easy task and I remember in school his fervour and undying spirit was an inspiring history lesson. Unfortunately Dr Sun died young and upon his death the young Chinese republic fell into chaos. Imagine what things politically would have been in the mainland and Taiwan if things turned out differently! Pay attention to the architecture as well. There is an interesting Chinese photographic exhibition on that will show what life was like in Singapore before the tragic Japanese occupation.

    Underrated museum that deserves to be on any history buff itinerary
    One of those underrated museum that is off the path of usual tourist traps. The place has a good mixed of artifacts dedicated to Sun Yat Sen and also early Singapore history before independence. Everything is well displayed with simple descriptions attached and some are coupled with good usage of multi media aids which bring the viewing and whole visit a joy. Highly recommended to anyone that wants to learn more of Singapore’s role in the ending China’s Qing dynasty rule. Tip for those that drive, so parked either at the residential car park nearby or the mall the opposite. There are no parking on site.
