This former residence of General Joseph Stilwell was converted into a popular museum in 1991. Travelers can explore the three-story home of this one-time commander-in-chief of the American Army in the China Burma India Theater and learn about his life, conquests and death while wandering the 1940s-style halls. The museum offers visitors access to meeting rooms, bedrooms, and a basement where hundreds of artifacts are on display. A private courtyard with a large statue of Stilwell and an engraved message written by Franklin Delano Roosevelt that is translated into both English and Chinese, is a popular stop for visitors.
Travelers say in addition to a bit of history and a slice of Stilwell life, the museum grounds look out over some of the best views in the city. After touring the home and combing through the museum halls, be sure to look out at the spectacular landscapes.
The museum is located in Stilwell’s former three-story residence on Jialingjiang Binjiang Road in Yuzhong. It is open daily from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. between March and December and accessible using the light rail at Liziba Station.
