Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, Singapore

4.3
Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (SYSNMH), a heritage institution under the National Heritage Board, traces Dr. Sun's revolutionary activities in the Southeast Asian region and highlights the impact of the 1911 Chinese Revolution on Singapore as well as Singapore's contributions to the Revolution.

The SYSNMH reopened on 8 October 2011 after a year-long revamp. The refreshed Memorial Hall features a new storyline and galleries which introduce key community leaders in the early 20th Century; highlights Nanyang as a base for Revolution; and explores the impact and influences of the 1911 Chinese Revolution on the Singapore Chinese community.

SYSNMH is closed on Mondays and Chinese New Year's Eve.

  • Great place to understand history of Singapore famous and influential public figures during that period of time
  • Not very well known historical site. Much to learn here.
  • It costs little for tourist to visit this place and its free for Singaporeans. Admission is only $6 for adults and $4 for kids and senior citizens. This also gives you access to free guided tours of the permanent galleries and special exhibitions conducted by Friends of the Museums (Singapore), Mandarin Docent group and Museum Volunteers group. The premise of this attraction is the story of Dr Sun Yat Sen, his revolutionary activities in the Southeast Asia (SEA), the role of the villa as his SEA headquarters and Singapore's involvement in the 1911 Chinese Revolution in Mainland China. Finding this heritage villa turned museum may not be so easy for visitors as its hidden away in the laneway of a suburb named "Balestier". I suggest taking the taxi to avoid the hassle with MRT and buses.
  • Beautiful and historical building. Very good information about SYS"s work. Must go for a guided tour!
  • Great place to understand about Dr. Sun Yat-sen who is a towering intellectual in Asia.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
