2. MADAM SONG's MANSION(Song Qing Ling Gu Ju)

Madam Song Qingling was the wife of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the founder of the republic, and she herself was the Vice-president of the People's Republic of China.


As the second daughter of the famous Song family(Her younger sister Song Mei-ling married Chiang Kai-shek), she studied in the United  States and was deeply involved in China's political life. Just as Dr. Sun  Yat-sen was regarded as the "Father of the Republic", she was  sometimes called the "Mother of the Republic". Her personal life was to  some extent a mini-history of modern China.

In 1981, her residence was turned into a museum dedicated to the memory of her and Dr. Sun Yat-sen. The layout of the houses and the arrangement of the furniture and her personal belongings are kept as they were when she was alive. Pictures of historical interest are also displayed.
