I’d highly recommend this little museum for anyone interested in learning about the history of Singapore. The mock up of the rooms was fascinating, and the audio guide gave same interesting insights. Thank you!

Informative and interesting. Lot of history and artifacts to look over. You can work you way through in an hour quite easily but worth a look.

Situated in the heart of Chinatown. One of the best museums I've visited in a long time. Hadn't really intended to come, but stumbled upon it when walking round. What a pleasant surprise. The audio guide is outstanding and the exhibits so interesting. Depictions and...More

Fantastic museum tells the story of the Chinese immigrants through artifacts and rooms. Audioguide leads the way, small stories make history come alive. Museum is a bit hidden in between restaurants. Don’t miss it. Self guided tour takes 2 hrs. Pic shiws doctor’s room.

Well worth the time it will talk to do this place justice. It tells the stories of Chinese immigrants coming to live in Singapore either voluntarily or otherwise. Great audio visual guide takes you around.

Can highly recommend this museum. The overall presentation and in depth information contained here is a true insight into the history and hardship of the Chinese who came to Singapore. The audio provided was well presented and informative.

Quite good explanation how the Chinese immigrants came to Malaysia but only if we can get to see more exhibits. Ticket price is ok. Adult RM6 and student orice was RM3.

The history of the chinese people who lived here is well preserved. The only drwback is that you have to climb the stairs but its worth it. It is very informative
