Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall

Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, Singapore

A national monument, the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (SYSNMH) tells a story of heroism, nationalism and armed struggle of the Chinese Revolutionary Alliance in Southeast Asia.

Formerly known as Wan Qing Yuan (which means 'a haven of peace in the twilight years'), it was the headquarters of the Chinese Revolutionary Alliance which raised support throughout Southeast Asia for the revolution that ended the Qing dynastic rule and heralded the start of modern China.

The garden of this elegant colonial-style villa features a number of sculptures. There is the stone stele measuring 3.5 metres tall and weighing 16,000 kilogrammes, the bronze statue of Dr. Sun Yat Sen and a 25-metre long bronze mural.

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.

Two levels of galleries include:
  • Hall of Peace
  • Passage of History
  • Gallery of Endeavour
  • Hall of Wisdom
  • Passage Through the Eras
  • The Singapore Gallery
