  • This is a nice memorial hall, well worth a visit if you are in the area. Interesting museum and a way to learn about Singapore history (parts of it). But do all other things Singapore has to offer...  more »

  • Learnt quite a bit of history in there, particularly how amongst the overseas Chinese there was a strong sense of nationalism and identification with the motherland. Today are such sentiments still as strong with first generation migrants? If so, how much of that identity is transmitted to the next generation? Having been there, I think this monument is an important marker of our evolving identity.
  • Heritage architecture and air-con...what more could you ask for? This boutique museum is just gorgeous and gives you a fascinating insight into Singapore's history around the turn of the century with a focus on Dr. Sun Yat Sen. Located nearby to a small modern shopping center and many nice restaurants for lunch including Pistachio Middle Eastern & Mediterranean Grill.
  • Well-maintained building and exhibits. It's covered under the Balestier Heritage Trail so you can read about it before deciding if it's worth your time to visit
  • Nice and quiet ambience. Worth a visit as part of Balestier Heritage Trail. Get a copy of trail map and booklet at the visitor information counter.
  • A place to spend a few hours to a whole day. The exterior is free for all. Entry to the museum is free for Singaporean. Others pay a nominal fee. Details of Mr Sun Yay Sen"s life are being displayed.
