It‘s an interesting place with a lot of history but I see interesting places in my life. But when you stay longer in Shaoxing it‘s nice to see.

Quite touristy but worth visiting; an informative and charming place in the heart of old Shaoxing. Good place for purchasing souvenirs, too.

Nicely preserved, free of entry charges. Nothing breath taking, but on non-crowded days, this offers an interesting glimpse into life of a period past. I like the gardens around the house better than the interiors though.

Given the proximity of the two homes that were in the family before and during Lu Xun's life, the area has been organized into a historical street with the sites on either side. There were two homes used by Lu Xun's family at various points,...More
