The students learnt how Chinese immigrants in Singapore played an essential role in the 1911 Revolution, overthrowing the Qing dynasty and the birth of modern day China. As the original residence of Sun Yat Sen’s visits, the museum holds many original artifacts, historical documents and books, as well as temporary exhibitions. Our students enjoyed the Between the Lines – The Chinese Cartoon Revolution exhibition, which is a collaboration between Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall and the Memorial Museum of 1911 Revolution in Guangzhou and examines the links between the 1911 Revolution in China and the emergence of Chinese cartoons in Singapore. This exhibition showcases close to 150 Chinese cartoons, as well as related artifacts and images from Singapore and China, between the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century to trace the history and development of local Chinese cartoons.
An interesting and very educational trip, enjoyed by all students.
