Huaijiu Gulangyu Museum, Xiamen

4.4
#1 of 17 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.

    The piano Museum is located in two buildings - this is one of them. Part of the Combi ticket on the island. Is a "can", not "must".
