Honouring the legacy of the hospital’s founder, Mr Tan Tock Seng, the museum features a collection of Peranakan items from the mid 1800s.

Medical equipment and hospital artifacts capture the enduring spirit of Singapore’s first community hospital dedicated “to care for the sick poor”. The hospital’s development and achievements – in particular, its pioneering role in the treatment of tuberculosis (1940s) and its monumental leadership in the fight against SARS – are presented through narrative displays, salvaged historical objects and a time capsule.

Come experience the 161-year heritage of the only Singapore hospital named after a person and began with an act of philanthropy.
