Huaijiu Gulangyu Museum, Xiamen

(260+ reviews on the web)
Specialty 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.

  • 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".

  • Is located on a hill octagonal building, this museum exhibits history of Xiamen and gulangyu island. Exhibition. I'm building a dome of the most prominent. Such as Lighthouse industries, crafts and war relics are exhibited. Ming Cheng Ho sailed the Indian Ocean era, still obviously did not know, authenticity is the Tei success relationship based "anti-Qing Ming" to put up the late Taiwan to exhibit many.

  • On gulangyu island is rugged, so go to this museum's uphill road to the end and there is a Museum of the West winds. Able to see the beautiful piano antique feel elegant and very very good.
