  • A glimpse into an old era thru the residence of Lu Xun. No admission charges.
  • A nostalgic place of a great artist.
  • Rich of historical and memorial resources
  • Lu Xun should know their house was developed into a tourist attraction, estimated death of being alive. But this really is a treasure.
