2021 Museum Roundtable: Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall

"Originally known as Wan Qing Yuan, this villa was bought by Teo Eng Hock in 1905 as a retirement home for his mother’s twilight years. He later offered the villa to Dr. Sun for his revolutionary activities. It was in this villa that Dr. Sun planned three uprisings before the successful Wuchang Uprising of 1911."

"The Memorial Hall also shares how the 1911 Revolution left its lasting imprint on Singapore, especially in the areas of education, print media and economic contributions.  This Singapore and Nanyang-centred focus is what sets the Memorial Hall apart from other museums and institutions dedicated to the legacy of Dr. Sun Yat Sen around the world."
