Travel back in time as you enter the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, a villa-turned-museum that commemorates Dr. Sun, the iconic leader in the 1911 Chinese Revolution and a pivotal figure in Chinese and Southeast Asian history. The memorial hall, once the stronghold of the Chinese Revolutionary Alliance, displays a large number of historical photographs and personal belongings of Sun Yat Sen, along with other artifacts from the revolution. A large number of exhibits showcase the history of the Singaporean Chinese community during the first half of the 20th century and narrates the impact of the revolution on Singapore and other Southeast Asian societies.
Don’t miss the authentic 100 year old Letterpress Cylinder Printing Machine, one of the most interesting pieces in this Heritage Centre. As you explore the halls together with your volunteer tour guide, get a glimpse of the rich history of the prominent community that led China to become what it is today.
