This is the former residence of Dr Sun Yatsen, the revoluntionary leader against the Qing dynasty and first President/Premier of modern China. It is a peaceful garden house covers an area of about 1000sqm. The building is a two-storey European style built at the beginning of 20th century. Oriented south and north, the outer wall of the house was decorated with gray cobbles, and the roof covered with carmine heart-shaped tiles. The square lawn in the front is surrounded by many beautiful flowers.

The residence was bought over by four Canadian-Chinese and presented to Dr Sun in 1918.

On the day of our visit, it was drizzling there but we still enjoy our visit, it's so peaceful and tranquil and yet get up and closed with the displays and exhibits where history comes alive!

When I clicked on directions in this TA it opened in google maps needless to say the location was not accurate as it normally is in China 2 out of 10) in most cases. This house museum is in the former French Concession it is down the street from the Zhou Enlai historical residence. Find the Starbucks on the corner (it will be on the left side of the street coming down from the Boxing Cat Brewery) turn right go about 100 yards or so. There is a police station right across the street on the corner. The walk through takes less than an hour. They are checking health codes so have it ready, know your passport number, and your Chinese SIM number. Look at my pictures.

Great hour stop between fuxing park and other attractions in the French Concession. Good primary source materials on a fascinating man, who died before his full legacy was realized. Also good primary materials on his famous wife.

Dr. Sun Yat-sen is the father of modern China. There are 2 things to see for a good price:

1. The former residence of Dr. Sun Yat-sen & his wife Soong Ching Ling
2. Sun-Yat Sen Museum

The price was $20 RMB per person.

In the museum, there are items things other than those that belonged to Dr. Sun. In general, the items that belonged to that period (around 1890-1925) were displayed. There was even a live audio record of Dr. Sun's speech which was played continuously. $20 would be good just for this museum. But the best part is yet to come: the former residence of Dr. Sun and his wife. The residence was a very neat place for it was a place for Dr. Sun to receive his political and other important guests. Visitors can immediately feel a sense of dignity beaming out from the furniture and its arrangement inside the house.

There are not a lot of places in Shanghai with historical significance left these days as most things were torn down for the building of a modern city. But Dr. Sun's former residence at No. 7 Xiangshan Road, Shanghai is one of them.

Anyone who wants to understand China must visit this spot.

Showcasing Sun-yat Sen's Shanghai residence and home, it gives a nice picture 20th century upper-class living.
You should also visit the nearby park, especially on a Sunday.

Most visitors will certainly leave this house-turned-museum with a better understanding of the role and times that Dr Sun Yat-sen lived through and connect this with what was going on elsewhere in the world. The critical role of Dr Sun's wife and political partner is emphasized throughout.

There was an ante-structure that described the relationship between Sun Yat Sen and the Canadian Chinese (did you know that his aide de camp was Canadian, and white -- and that the Canadian Chinese raised the funds to purchase this house in Shanghai), which was mostly in English and very well done, if a bit "party-line" in tone.

The first real structure is the museum, which is mostly in Chinese and not too interesting for those who don't read Chinese. The second building is his actual house. That part was really cool, but no photos allowed there. And the guards looked serious!

Nicely nested in the French Concession, this museum is actually spread over 2 early XX century houses, the one where Dr. Sun Yat Sen and his wife actually lived, as well as the neighbour's house, turned into a museum. Even though many exhibits are only in Chinese, enough of them are translated into English to allow you a good comprehension of both life at that time as well as the Dr.'s visionary planning for his country. Most enlightening was his position on how to use foreign capital to help develop local industries and, later on, take them over! Sounds familiar ... A real great statesman!

We visited the house and museum and enjoyed it. We had a Chinese-speaker with us and it greatly helped to know what the signage that wasn't in English said. Beautiful part of the French Concession and Fuxing Park close by. It was interesting to learn about someone who may very well have brought about a very different Chinese nation, had he lived longer. Worth it if you are in the area, for sure.
