Sun Yat Sen memorial hall to reopen

Sun Yat Sen memorial hall to reopen

SINGAPORE: The century-old Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall will reopen on 8 October after being closed for over a year for repairs.


Artefacts displayed at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall

The Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCCI) and the National Heritage Board (NHB) spent some S$5.6 million on the revamp.

The reopening of the museum coincides with the 100th anniversary of the 1911 Chinese Revolution.

For the first time, more than 180 artefacts will be showcased to highlight Singapore's contribution during the revolution.

The artefacts include a photograph of Sun Yat Sen at the museum in 1906.

Twenty of these artefacts have been loaned from the descendants of prominent locals such as Teochew businessman Teo Eng Hock.

Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall general manager Shaun Phua said: "In the course of research and securing loans from many of these descendants, my team and I went to San Francisco to visit the descendant daughter of Teo Eng Hock, who is 88 years old.

"We also went to Sydney (to visit) the other daughter of Teo Eng Hock who is 97 years old.

"With these visits, we have secured interviews, archival records, and important photographs of Teo Eng Hock. And now we've known his personality better."

Sun Yat Sen, Father of China

If not because of him, China today might still be under Imperialism

More than 70,000 visitors to Sun Yat Sen hall

More than 70,000 visitors to Sun Yat Sen hall
Posted: 30 October 2011 2109 hrs


SINGAPORE: The revamped Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall has welcomed 70,269 visitors through its doors since its re-opening earlier this month.


The Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall

The museum, which held its re-opening on 8 October in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the 1911 Revolution, features new galleries as well as many original artefacts never displayed before.

Coupled with free entry over the last three weeks, the hall saw an average of 1,000 visitors on weekdays, and 15,000 visitors on weekends.

This vastly exceeds the average visitorship of 1,000 a month prior to the redevelopment of the museum.
