Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum

Description

Dr Sun Yatsen was a world-renowned revolutionary who devoted his entire life to overthrowing the Qing Dynasty and setting up the Republic of China. His achievements were recognized and admired not only by the local and overseas Chinese but also by the global community. Dr. Sun had a close relationship with Hong Kong, where he received his secondary and university education. Hong Kong was also the cradle of his revolutionary thoughts and uprising plans. Dr Sun Yatsen Museum will highlight Dr Sun's intimate connections with Hong Kong so that local citizens and overseas tourists alike will be able to reminisce about the activities of this great Chinese statesman. Dr Sun Yatsen Museum has two permanent exhibitions displaying a number of precious historical artefacts.

Supplemented by a wide range of audiovisual programmes, the Museum gives a comprehensive overview of the life and career of Dr Sun, and Hong Kong's vital role in the reform movements and revolutionary activities in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. After a visit to the museum, further insights into the life of this amazing man can be gleaned by following the Dr Sun Yatsen Historical Trail. It includes landmarks in his life during his stay in Hong Kong. Information plaques along the way facilitate your exploration into the life of the man who was proclaimed Provisional President of the Republic of China in 1912.

Note: Visitors are advised that parts of the trail are narrow and steep, so wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes, and use sunblock if needed.
