SUN YAT SEN NANYANG MEMORIAL HALL:

Overview:
Standing as a two-storey colonial style villa and believed to have been built in 1880 by a businessman, Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall was gazetted as a National Monument on 28 October 1994 by the Singapore government.

The villa is now a museum commemorating Sun Yat-sen, the founding father of the Republic of China, who visited Singapore nine times between 1900 and 1911. It 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 villa is now home to a collection of close to 400 artefacts, including calligraphy works, photographs, old books, paintings, sculptures & etc., all spread over the five galleries in two levels.

The SYSNMH was re-opened to the public on 9 October 2011 after one year of renovation works. The revamped Memorial Hall features a new storyline and new galleries that introduce key community leaders in the early 20th century; highlights Nanyang as a base for the Revolution; and explores the impact and influences of the 1911 Chinese Revolution on the Singapore Chinese community.
