The Tan Tock Seng Hospital Heritage Museum opened its doors on 25 July 2001. Honouring the legacy of our founder Mr Tan Tock Seng, the museum features a collection of Peranakan items from the mid-1800s, during Mr Tan’s time.
Medical equipment and hospital artefacts of yore capture the enduring spirit of Singapore’s first community hospital dedicated “to care for the sick poor of all nations”. 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 171-year heritage of the first Singapore hospital named after a person and started by an act of philanthropy!
Admission is free.
TTSH Heritage Museum is a member of the National Heritage Board’s Museum Roundtable.
