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.

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.
