Chinatown Heritage Centre, Singapore Reviews

  • Definitely a great visit not only for tourist but for locals. Brought my relatives from Canada and it was a great time of sharing for my uncle who had lived through those times and my cousin who had never lived in Asia. Very well set up. Staff a little too serious though. Still.. highly recommended!

  • Really good museum with focus of life in the 1950s in Chinatown. Even though the museum is small its packed with many items to see. Its main focus is on the types of people there rather than how they came to be there or how the overcrowding occurred which is the only reason I didn't give 5 stars. Its a fascinating look into how things were in Singapore back in the day. Well worth a look of you are in Chinatown

  • Second time I've visited over the years. This museum is very impressive and teaches me a lot about the Singapore of yesteryear that my mum grew up in. Audio tour is comprehensive, well voiced, and perfectly paced and there is a ton of stuff to see. I estimate it takes 2-3 hours to read every placard at every exhibit. Gift shop didn't have anything special. Well worth the time and price.

  • A nice museum to learn about overseas Chinese heritage, with detail explanation of how overseas Chinese used to live, what inside of Chinese house from the past, etc. I really the way they use audio tour guide which we can play it in every room for the explanation. However, this museum is quite small. So, everything inside is quite packed.

  • Mascara warning, if you've any sensitivity then seeing how hard life was not too long ago for some people should tug at your heart strings. It is very informative and interesting with the help of the audio guide, not something that i would ordinarily partake in. The reproduction seems to be very good. Stand in the doorway of the room of the family of 2 adults and 6 kids and think about it...
