Very humble residence for someone who came from Zhongshan and led a revolution which brought about a new kind of government in the most populist country in the world. The museum provided valuable historical perspective on his as well as the country's struggles at the turn of the 20th century. It also offered some intimate glimpse into his family life.... More

The museum is well maintained and it is unique in many aspects. It is build upon the village in which the Father of modern China was born. Many of the houses are preserved and maintained. Local customs and culture are presented along with these houses. In the main museum, the life story of Dr. Sun Yat Sen and his struggle... More

When my friends and I visited the museum (officially: The Museum of Dr. Sun Yat-sen; Chinese: 孙中山故居) there was a so-called visitors' center to the left of the entrance but there were no museum maps only a small brochure in Chinese explaining the museum and Cuiheng area. No tour guides as this is a self guided tour but I saw... More

A piece of China modern history. Carefully planned and well illustrated I leaned quite a bit about the man who initiated the Chinese revolutionary and became the first president and founding father of the Republic of China. Highly recommended if travel to the Zhongshan area.

This was interesting in the sense that you see artefacts of sunyatsen the founder of zhongshan city. But it is not a superb museum. No actors. You just walk through and are welcome at the end of your tour by a little chinesery gift shop. The chinesery i call them, are plastic things you buy and then forget about. It... More

The entrance fee is only rmb10. So we didn't expect much. If you have spare time, you can go for a walk. Most of the display are with Chinese words explanation. If you can't read Chinese, you will find it hard to understand the display.

This attraction is free, but probably the best in the area, if you are interested in Chinese History. It can be covered in a couple of hours but is worth a visit.

This is a great place to spend a few hours. See the house and other structures from Sun Yat Sen's village. A good mix of culture, beautiful grounds and history. He was a major influence in the growth, modernization and expansion of China's place in the world. I never knew about this important, intelligent and inspiring man. An excellent way... More
