Chinese Heritage Centre, Singapore
(4/5 based on 15 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.

  • 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
