Was on a business trip and my hosts brought me here to "help me with my jet lag" Actually I think more of "it's a nice day let's skive with our guest". I was skeptical and... read more

The museum is worth a trip by itself. Its a good place to learn sone of China's recent history. The old house of Dr. Sun's family is preserved quite well too. Best thing is it's free - which is very rare in China's over priced tourism market.

We went to Sun Yatsen Mausoleum in Nanjing a few times, and glad we had the opportunity to visit his former residence. We even saw the tree that Dr. Sun planted. Admission is free. Although we visited on May 1st (a Chinese National Holiday) the queue was not long. This former residence was a modern mansion compare to the other... More

Was on a business trip and my hosts brought me here to "help me with my jet lag" Actually I think more of "it's a nice day let's skive with our guest". I was skeptical and expected a hagiographic exposition on the "father of the revolution". Instead saw an really interesting display, in orginal buildings, of how life was lived... More

Despite the exhausting, long bus journey from the centre, we found this very interesting. The best parts were the reconstructed village Cuiheng and the realistic presentation of SYS's early years,

This is the home village of the father of modern China, Dr Sun Yatsen. The local government has spent a lot of money to restore the place, but only too much. The little village looks so unauthentic and crowded with people. The museum inside the complex is informative re modern Chinese history. It is also extremely difficult to find parking... More

Free admission. About 40 min drive from Downtown Zhongshan. Parking at RMB20 per entry opposite to the museum though not sure if the operator has legal license to operate ? You can see Dr Sun's family house and the museum gives a very good account of Dr Sun.

We spent almost 3 hours in an afternoon to visit this place. It is a very good opportunity for young people or those who are interested in Chinese culture and history of China. Dr. Sun was the great man in China history and we should learn more about his background and what he had done. The museum is very nicely... More

Good place to see if you are interested in cultural and Historical stuff. It is almost an hours drive from City centre.
