More than 100 exhibits are on display here including Lin's official clothes, seals, memorials to the throne and calligraphy. The museum recounts how he fought against the invasion of Western countries but also... More

The story of Lin Zexu has been told in many times and in several ways. The one common thing about him is that he is incorruptible and righteous. Too bad his exploits were disastrous for his country and gave Britain a permanent stain on its reputation. Much information is provided should you be interested to learn more. Ironically Lin, earlier... More

This was a pleasant attraction right next to the Three Lanes and Seven Alleys that should be visited when in the area. This is a memorial to a notable historical figure from the 19th century Opium Wars. While much of the action took place elsewhere, Fuzhou is the hometown of this figure, hence placing the monument here. The size is... More

When I visit there yesterday it wasn't free of charge. Regular price was approx 100 RNB (ticket allows you to visit several museum near by also). However the place is very nice and really quiet. A lot of "anti-drug" exhibitions were set up. Most of the things also with English translations. However the "Story" of the place was told a... More

Very well maintained and free of charge but must bring Chinese ID or passport to get a ticket. Truly interesting story about this general who wanted China to open for foreigner business then to find himself later in a war with the West, after he order to sink an English ship bringing opium into China. Peculiar is the drugs exposition,... More

We visited the site on a Sunday but it was surprisingly not very busy with mainly locals and domestic tourist. The total site would take about an hour or 2 to cover depending on how much time you would spend on the details. This is one of the few places that has English translation and a fairly detailed one too.... More

Some friends in Fuzhou took us to the Lin Zexu Memorial, and was able to give us the historical significance of Lin Zexu, and what he meant to China. It was a very informative and educational memorial and museum. It is well laid out, and has many English placards for the exhibits. It is really beautiful! I'd highly recommend it!!

A memorial to Lin Zexu, great Fuzhou patriot who unsuccessfully resisted the British trade of opium in China in the 19th c. Though Lin did not actually reside in this elegant courtyard house, this museum appropriately pays tribute to a modern hero. Free entry following registration of ID/passport at the ticket kiosk up the street. Headphones in Chinese or English... More
