Sun Yat-sen, the first President of the Republic of China, lived here for several years with his wife. The house itself is largely preserved as it was. There is also an informative museum in a Shanghai tour separate building which contains memorabilia related to the struggle to overthrow the Qing dynasty and establish the republic. Explanatory plaques are in both Chinese and English, although many of the exhibits are documents or posters in Chinese.
Today, all the rooms are arranged as they were when Dr. Sun lived here and most of the furniture and articles on display in the residence are the original ones used by Dr. Sun Yat-sen and Madam Song Chingling. The house is a fascinating insight into China tours the life of the revolutionary man, a window into history which is usually peaceful and free from crowds.
