  • Sun Yat Sen or ZhongShan is a name that you hit on everywhere in cities across China. As streets, parks, universities, etc. This museum in Nanlang, I have visited many times and all the time you will find things you missed on previous visits, and that is a must to visit. The visit here will give much more, in my opinion, than visiting any Maomaosoleum.

  • If you are looking to spend a lot of time here, there is not really much to see. It reflects the heritage of the old town.  more »

  • Dr. Sun Yat Sen was a revolutionary ahead of his time: democracy activist, world traveler, and educated man. He is still well-known among Chinese the world over. His activities and life took him from China, to Honolulu for education, to the United States for a speaking tour, and also to Hong Kong and Macau. This museum is made of two parts: old folk structures from his youth and a modern building showing his community organizing during adulthood. Inside the folk houses: I learned that beds during his time didn't have mattresses or pillows-- one slept on a hard wooden bed with the head supported by a wooden or jade frame not much bigger than a chopstick holder. One of my favorite exhibits though was the bridal suite: two mannequins representing a newlywed husband and wife in red, and a sedan chair. There are also several display cases with models of what traditional Chinese feasts looked like, including winter festival, Ching Ming, wedding party, and Chinese New Year. Inside the exhibition building: photographs, newspapers, statues, and literature from Dr. Sun's activist years. A museum shop sold trinkets like pens andbkeychains; I bought a little flashlight using button batteries. I was disappointed to see the books were only in Chinese as I wanted to buy an English biography or memoir of his life.
  • A very meaningful place to visit. Well maintained and neat! Highly recommended! Got free Wi-Fi...
  • One of the most important place in modern Chinese history, there are several exhibition halls here including Dr. Suen old house, neighbourhoods’s house as well as a huge exhibition hall. Apart from that, the museum also contains a demonstrating farm of the city of Zhongshan, showing how this industry developed in the city. It’s quite a good place to escape from city and its completely free entry.
  • Detailed description of the history of Mr. Sun, reasonable priced souvenirs.
  • A must see historical place in China.
