Chinese Heritage Centre, Singapore

(4.1/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1953 and gazetted as a National Monument on the 18 December 1999, the Chinese Heritage Centre is the first organisation to specialise in the study of Chinese communities outside China. Hence, it is most appropriate that the Centre should be housed in the former Nanyang University's historic Administration Block, which itself is a relic of the landmark establishment of the first and only Chinese university outside China, founded by the Chinese overseas.

Visitors will find it pleasant to simply admire the unique architecture of this 1950s building, now a National Monument, or take a stroll in the Yunnan Garden or by the Nantah Lake, right beside the Centre.

  • 華裔館是南洋理工大學的自主研究所 - 有研究中心,圖書館和博物館。博物館設有兩個永久性的展覽。第一個是:“華人多或少”展覽探討華人身份的主題。它指出華人在新加坡和南洋做的貢獻,以及分辨華裔和華僑的區別。新加坡的華人都是華裔而不是華僑,因為它們在感情上,沒有與大陸的任何連接了。第二個是“南大畫報”展覽,其中包括南洋大學的120多份檔案照片,50年代中國以外的高等教育機構。如果你喜歡歷史,你應該參觀這...  more »

  • Visited it some time back. It's essentially a museum that narrates the history of NTU and the chinese culture. It's worth to drop by when you visit NTU
  • old feels. rustic and charming!
  • Very fine architecture. Close to perfection almost with very complete Chinese library system.
  • Like the environment here. The pavilions in front follow the Chinese style ❤️
  • Pretty boring, it's mostly a descriptive tour. The artifacts are insignificant(maybe it's just I'm spoiled by many other great real museums). Architecture is ok, but nothing extraordinary
