Interesting museums on local history that affected the creation of communist China

The museum is devoted to a father and son warlord dynasty in the north east of China. The father was the main warlord (mafia head) before he was killed in a train explosion in... read more

Again on the day of a visit I was the only foreigner.Many locals/ Chinese tourists. Fair enough - those men were important for this part of China and people come now to look at memorabilia. Rooms are a bit too dusty though for the museum:) It was quite difficult to sort out what to pay for what at tickets office,... More

The museum is devoted to a father and son warlord dynasty in the north east of China. The father was the main warlord (mafia head) before he was killed in a train explosion in 1918 to prompt the Japanese invasion. Zhang Xuenliang (the son) then took up the reigns and was instrumental in bringing Mao and Chiang Kai - Shek... More

Commander Zhang Zuolin lived in a crucial period in the history of China. His mansion, an impressive array of offices and living facilities, was transformed into a museum. It is interesting to learn about his role, not widely known in the West. That said, it is important to note that the attraction has more appeal for the local population (mainly... More

I could tell my tour guide was very proud of the accomplishments of the 2 generations of leaders who built and lived in this residence, but it probably does not have the wow factor for a foreigner that it does for natives of Shenyang. Nicely maintained and a nice visit, though.

we took our expectations up too high, yet it was closed on Monday, quite disappointed, especially that we did look it up online to see it's opening time, it didn't say a thing about Monday morning being closed.. don't know when we get to come to Shenyang again, might never have a chance to Former Residence..

The wonderful examples of traditional Chinese and colonial Western architecture are really interesting. The museum aspect, less so unless you're a student of Chinese history. If you are, it's definitely worth a visit to learn about the family who ruled northeast China in the Republican era and the son who kidnapped Chiang Kai-shek to force him into uniting with the...

It's an unbelievable to see a mansion of a national hero. It has many beautiful spots to capture. It also has many rooms to visit and you can learn the way of the family lives and the stragle of the China war. In the garden, it has big rock. Don't dare to climb it, as the security will scream at... More

I wouldn't have even known who this guy or his Dad were, but after spending a couple of hours here, I got a great history of them, but also of a big part of China's history and their role. You can't go wrong visiting this Museum and it's a good prequel to the 9.18 Historical Museum. The exhibits, photos and... More

It is a nice area with some buildings with colonial style. There you can see how this famous person and his wife did life. It would be a nice afternoon trip.

We were guests of a local institute so I can't say much about access (we had a car) or costs) we were guests, as I said, but the visit was fascinating. There is a bank museum close by which is also worth a trip.
