Most interesting spot in Jiaxing
Sep 2018 • Solo
This museum should actually be on top of your list if you happen to find yourself in Jiaxing and have only a passing interest in history. The information on this page is outdated, as the museum moved to a shiny, brand-new location. The content also looks fresh and contains lots of reliefs, paintings and pictures to chronicle the birth and development of the CCP and China itself. Obviously it's highly propagandistic, but still very informative. Also, entrance is free.

Not just a tourist attraction -- It's a big part of China's history -
May 2018 • Friends
This was my first visit to Jiaxing City. It's less than 1/2 hour by the fast train from Shanghai Hong Qiao Train station. The South Lake Revolutionary Memeorial Hall is a MUST SEE in the city. It's not just a tourist attraction -- It's a big part of China's history !
Although I could not understand all what I saw, as most of it is in Chinese (I should have takien the English Video guide), but I got a great overview of what happened in China before and since the beginning of the Chinese Communist Party.

The beginning of the Chinese Communist Party
May 2017
Very surprised to find this museum in Jaixing but the exhibits explain why the leaders of the party had to leave Shanghai and convened on a pleasure boat on South Lake Jaixing. Interesting exhibits, many with English descriptions. We were fortunate to have a group of Chinese students taking us around who explained everything we could not understand. if you like political history it will impress, however if you are looking for old pots and urns you will be disappointed.

Well worth a visit
Jun 2015
This impressive museum gives an account of the Communist Party of China (CPC) from a Chinese perspective, as one would expect. It provides a version of history to balance lessons delivered outside of China. Information is detailed, you can spend as long as you like viewing the three floors, most displays are written in Chinese with some English. Entry is free, however, you need to obtain a ticket from the reception. Audio is available in several languages for just 10 RMB. Westerners please note there is a dress code; strapless tops are discouraged and shoes without a back (i.e. no slips-ons or scuffs) are not allowed. Well worth a visit!

A Museum to miss
Mar 2014 • Friends
The museum is huge and largely dependent on visitors reading long passages (written in Mandarin) about the history of Communism in China. On one visit, no English audio-translators were available, so we quickly looked at the displays, paintings and occasional diorama but most of the information was lost to us. Having been there before, I know that you learn much about propaganda and the Chinese interpretation of 20th century history. However, the building is not heated, so it can be very uncomfortable in cooler weather.

Great museum on how the party came to power
The huge museum contains literally thousands of exhibits about how the communist party came to power.

With free entry, and very popular with domestic tourists, the nanhu revolutionary memorial is definitely worthy of a visit if you are already in the area.

Great for those interested in history
Mar 2013 • Couples
The museum is a huge, fine-looking structure that is free to enter (security personnel check bags at the door). It's a popular pilgrimage site for Communist party members, military personnel, and people interested in the history of the party and the revolution that saw it come into power. Four or five floors of exhibits include tons of real artifacts of the era along with all kinds of paintings, sculptures, models, photos, video, text, and displays large and small. There's the usual gift shop within and a separate concession area, which wasn't open on the slow, cold day we visited. Shanghai visitors can hire a cab for the day (at reasonable price) to take them to nearby Jiaxing attractions. Though, leave early and return early to beat the traffic.

Good depiction of the Past

Rocks are admirable. The toilets are clean. Fishing can be a option if you take the old boats that are up for rent. Unique to the place are the old rocks and trees.

Very biased but gives a different perspective of the PRC. takes about 2 hours to do the three floors, main info boards are in chinese and english but the displays only in chinese so a translator is required. the displays show headphones as if a ausio track is available but I was not offered one at the reception. entry is free but a ticket needed from reception

Intensive Text Museum
A wonderful three story museum but a bit heavy on Chinese only text. The museum was also bitterly cold in winter. However, the English audio was great (if again somewhat more detail than needed). Videos were also Chinese only. Not being negative here as one should go and it is enlightening but it is not geared to English-language tourists as much as it could be.
