This is a smallish museum located where the people who started the Chinese communist party first met to plan its creation. While there is a fair amount of decent historical data both written and pictorial it is also a propaganda piece for the party. You can see the rooms they met in and the furniture they used. They conveniently leave out the info on the millions that died to create this political movement. It gave me chills to read about the movement and think about the horror they perpetrated upon their own people. This is definitely for history buffs and not your typical tourist.

How ironic that one of China's most important communist sites is located slap alongside one of its trendiest and expensive shopping and eating areas -French Concession . Well, that's a free-ish market for you! This is a gem of a museum. Biased, of course, but then anyone who thinks that western museums aren't presenting history from their biased point of view is wearing blinkers. Sufficient detail leading up to the first meeting in 1921. Enough English to know what you are looking at and how it all fits together. Free, just need to give up a finger. Sorry, fingerprint.

If you happen to be in the area, it's not a bad idea to stop by this little museum. Packed full of information, it will give you a very solid (but obviously biased) account of the birth of the Chinese Communist Party. All information is in Chinese and English.

This is nothing too special but it is a nice little bit of history to be at the very place the Communist Party of China held its first meeting almost 100 years ago. I wouldn't take a detour here but if you are visiting the Xintiandi district (and I recommend you should) then it is worth seeing.

Very interesting stop and multiple wall signs to read (in English as well as Chinese) to help understand the significance of the birthplace fo Chinese Communism Party. Life size statues of 13 first members of Communism Congressional Mtg where they were all sitting around a table, kind of like being there. Our tour guide did a wonderful job explaining important things about 4-5 of the most key members
