(260+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Huaijiu Gulangyu Museum and other Xiamen attractions using our handy Xiamen itinerary maker.
