If you can get past the unsubtle state propaganda (as Comrade Xi Jinping said...) it's a pretty interesting insight into the history of modern Chinese history (or at least how the current regimes wants to present it!). Best of all.. it's free!! Try not to...More

True to its description as "Exhibition of Historical Relics Showing the Founding of the Communist Party of China", this museum provides the historic background of the founding of CPC. The life size figures of the delegates at the scene are worth the visit. The venue...More

A deeply interesting and well curated museum. Not only does the collection outline the conditions and rise in popularity of communism in China, but also the struggles facing the communist party. I was fascinated with the information of a global communist movement and how support...More

A nice little museum, but the stories behind it from our guide were far better than the museum itself. Skip unless you have a compelling reason.

It is wonderful to see these places preserved and this history recognized. It is inspiring to see how Marxism and Lenin and Trotsky's revolution in Russia influenced and brought hope to so many people.

The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a
carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled
with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area

provides the area with green space and is also home to
