At No.7 Xiangshan Road, stands a two-storey European-style building. Revolutionist Sun Yat-sen (also named Sun Wen) lived there with his wife Soong Ching-ling from 1918 to 1925. Some overseas Chinese donated money to buy the house for Mr. Sun to support his revolution. Sun Yat-sen is the great forerunner of the Chinese democratic revolution, the founder of the Republic of China and the respected contributor to Chinese modern history.

The residence witnessed Mr. Sun's contributions to the Chinese revolution. After his death in 1925, Mrs. Soong continued to live here until 1937 when the Japanese army occupied Shanghai. In 1961, the Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen was listed as being one of the Key State-preserved Cultural Relic Units.

According to Mrs. Soong's memories, the furnishings, most of which were used by the couple, are displayed where they were. While walking through the house, one can recreate the life of the owners through every exhibited article, either the knives hanging over the fireplace,聽or聽the photos on the wall of the living-room,聽or聽the books lining the bookcases,聽or聽even a pair of glasses once used.

The activities of Mr. Sun Yat-sen, especially those of the days when he lived in Shanghai, are also displayed here in historical materials. Some precious photos are still kept here, including photos of the Communist Party and Kuomintang.

Opening hours: 9:00 am 鈥 4:30 pm.

How to get there: take No. 17, 24, 36, 42, 96, 781, 786, 911 bus.
