The Chinatown Heritage Centre is a joint project
between the Singapore Tourism Board
and the National Heritage Board.
Located in three newly restored shophouses along Pagoda Street,
the Chinatown Heritage Centre houses a wealth of memories
and untold stories from the past.
Each level of the Centre takes you to a different time
in the history of Chinatown and allows you
to trace the lives of these early settlers.
Learn about the rich cultural history of old Chinatown
and end your journey with a first-hand experience of living
in the dark and cramped quarters
of a typical Chinatown shophouse.
