Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen Tours

Sun Yat-sen organized and led the revolution against the Qing Empire in the first decade of the 20th century. He was the founder of the Republic of China, becoming its temporary first president at the end of the Qing Empire in 1912. Donated by some Canadian Chinese in support of the revolution, Yat-sen and his wife lived in this Western-style residence on Xiangshan Road from 1918 up until his death in 1924.

A wander around the living room and halls of the Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen gives a glimpse into the family’s life here. There are many pictures, hundreds of books, plus items such as an officer’s sword and military maps. There’s also a small brass statue of Yat-sen, and a picture of him and his wife, whom he married in Tokyo.

There is a museum next door to the house with eight galleries spread across three floors and more than 700 square meters of exhibition space. Here you’ll find hundreds of artifacts, manuscripts, and audiovisual exhibits relating to Sun Yat-sen’s life and the revolution.

Insider’s Tip
You can combine a visit to the Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen with a pleasant stroll to Fuxing Park and the Sinan Mansions. It can also be combined with a short walking tour of the Shanghai French Concession area.

Practical Info

To reach the Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen by metro, take Line 10 to Xintiandi, use exit 6, and then walk west for 10 minutes to the south gate of Fuxing Park. A number of buses also serve the area.
