  • Good place to visit in zhongshan
  • Dr. Sun Yat Sen was a revolutionary ahead of his time: democracy activist, world traveler, and educated man. He is still well-known among Chinese the world over. His activities and life took him from China, to Honolulu for education, to the United States for a speaking tour, and also to Hong Kong and Macau. This museum is made of two parts: old folk structures from his youth and a modern building showing his community organizing during adulthood. Inside the folk houses: I learned that beds during his time didn't have mattresses or pillows-- one slept on a hard wooden bed with the head supported by a wooden or jade frame not much bigger than a chopstick holder. One of my favorite exhibits though was the bridal suite: two mannequins representing a newlywed husband and wife in red, and a sedan chair. There are also several display cases with models of what traditional Chinese feasts looked like, including winter festival, Ching Ming, wedding party, and Chinese New Year. Inside the exhibition building: photographs, newspapers, statues, and literature from Dr. Sun's activist years. A museum shop sold trinkets like pens andbkeychains; I bought a little flashlight using button batteries. I was disappointed to see the books were only in Chinese as I wanted to buy an English biography or memoir of his life.
