The museum expands on the connections between Dr Sun Yat Sen, who headed the 1911 Chinese Revolution, and Singapore with artefacts, artworks and multimedia exhibits. The Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall is dedicated to Dr Sun Yat Sen, who headed the 1911 Chinese Revolution that eventually led to the downfall of the Qing Dynasty. Not many know that Singapore served as a hub for his revolutionary activities in Southeast Asia. The two-storey colonial-style villa that currently houses the museum was once the regional headquarters of the Chinese Revolutionary Alliance. The museum expands on the connections between Dr Sun and Singapore in five galleries with artefacts, artworks and multimedia exhibits.

  • We came here for visit, entrance free, since we staycation at Ramada hotel during the Depavali PH 2021. I am not a person who is interested in museum but I must say they have a special exhibition...

  • Museum has quite a depth of content particularly of the personalities involved. Useful to be able to read Chinese as the visual displays may have content that may not be fully translated. I believe a docent's tour be better for this gallery as some sections read more like a directory of names.
  • Went on a Sunday afternoon and it was quite crowded, considering the side of the villa. The villa was beautiful and well-maintained with air-conditioning and friendly staff. The exhibits were fairly interesting but lacking an impactful story. There weren't enough exhibits to tell the story of Dr. Sun Yat-sen in completion.
