Huaijiu Gulangyu Museum, Xiamen

4.4
#2 of 21 in Museums in Xiamen
Learn about the history of foreign trade, investment, and immigration on the island at Huaijiu Gulangyu Museum, focusing on those who moved to the area from the west in the years following the Opium Wars. As China opened up at the end of the 19th century, foreign traders moved in and established businesses and services, such as the German bank in which this museum sits. A number of audio-visual presentations, and a wealth of European furniture, trinkets, and everyday items from the period make for an interesting museum about a clash of cultures.

  • It is a piano museum in Korens Island. It is in the western on a little hill, and the piano which seems to be valuable is lined up. The atmosphere is a good place.

  • This is the highlight of our trip to Gulangyu. the museum was great. It has many different pianos. Some very very old. But getting to the Island was a nightmare. The fog caused disruption to the ferry...  more »
  • Many piano on explanations in both Chinese and English. Description, such as origin, style, and past owners were very interesting. Was found that piano is important because it was the humidity and temperature are controlled, but other tourists that are interested enough voice chatting are everywhere.

  • Lovely place. Xiamen has great food. Gulangyu is an island on its own and it's a popular tourist spot now. A lot of souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants. It's gone a bit touristy these days but still fun for a tour! You can spend half a day here!
  • Great place to visit or stay. Lots of old buildings to feast your eyes upon. Can try some famous local delicacies or shop for souvenirs too
  • Such a cool place. Amazing culture and diversity. Great views. Good food. Lots of walking. Make sure to go up to the high point lookout. Steep stairs. But very worth it.
  • It's a pretty nice place, but make sure you know your way and places first otherwise you won't get the full experience of it. Even though I'm Chinese myself I wish it was easier for foreigners to go around- please have less squatting toilets I'm not used to those as I'm from abroad :(((
  • Awesome pedestrian-only island with ferries conveniently departing from various piers in Xiamen. The unique blend of different types of architecture and large variety of attractions, most of them historic or with fantastic views make Gulangyu a must-visit destination during any trip to Xiamen.
