Was here yesterday with some friends and family on a tour. Very interesting and offers a great insight into Fuzhous past. Li Zexu was very influential and important in progressing Fuzhou into a place devoid of favour, but a place with justice. A must see .

We toured the memorial with 4 adults and 3 children/teens and enjoyed learning more about Lin Zexu and China during that time. The memorial was very well done and was a highlight of our visit to Fuzhou. Would definitely recommend visiting. Thoughts: - There is a large, beautiful statue of Lin Zexu close to the entrance. - The museum has... More

This memorial hall is in Three Lanes and Seven Alleys in Lin Zexu's house. He was a Qing Dynasty man who led the fight against opium smuggling. More than 100 exhibits are on display here including Lin's official clothes, seals, memorials to the throne and calligraphy. The museum recounts how he fought against the invasion of Western countries but also... More

The story of Lin Zexu has been told in many times and in several ways. The one common thing about him is that he is incorruptible and righteous. Too bad his exploits were disastrous for his country and gave Britain a permanent stain on its reputation. Much information is provided should you be interested to learn more. Ironically Lin, earlier... More

This was a pleasant attraction right next to the Three Lanes and Seven Alleys that should be visited when in the area. This is a memorial to a notable historical figure from the 19th century Opium Wars. While much of the action took place elsewhere, Fuzhou is the hometown of this figure, hence placing the monument here. The size is... More

When I visit there yesterday it wasn't free of charge. Regular price was approx 100 RNB (ticket allows you to visit several museum near by also). However the place is very nice and really quiet. A lot of "anti-drug" exhibitions were set up. Most of the things also with English translations. However the "Story" of the place was told a... More

Very well maintained and free of charge but must bring Chinese ID or passport to get a ticket. Truly interesting story about this general who wanted China to open for foreigner business then to find himself later in a war with the West, after he order to sink an English ship bringing opium into China. Peculiar is the drugs exposition,... More

We visited the site on a Sunday but it was surprisingly not very busy with mainly locals and domestic tourist. The total site would take about an hour or 2 to cover depending on how much time you would spend on the details. This is one of the few places that has English translation and a fairly detailed one too.... More
