Well maintained family home/complex of the writer Lu Xun. At a cost of 0 RMB, the price was certainly right. Interesting to discover a writer that had so much insight into the coming changes in China - indeed, maybe even help generate those changes. Clearly, my local friend though highly of Lu Xun and it is always nice to "dig... More

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, the Sanwei "college", and the Baicao garden all within 100 meters of each other. If... More

It's a pity that so few foreigners will ever think of coming here. Lu Xun is largely unknown overseas (although rightly revered domestically as the most important figure in early 20th-century Chinese literature), and Shaoxing is a little off-the-beaten-path for most tourists (though only a short train ride from Shanghai). I suspect a lot of overseas visitors also soon become... More

We went to Lu Xun's residence and was shocked by the quality of history and information it provided. It is definitely a place to go first if your visiting.

I didnt know anything about Lu Xun but I loved learning about him and his philosophy and writing. His home is beautiful and traditional and well worth the visit.

Lu Xun is China's greatest writer. I visited this former residence and the museum of Lu Xun in Shaoxing on a Saturday and hence there's masses of tourists but my level of interest was not reduced ! I love the museum as it has a well planned exhibit that offers very detailed insights into the literacy and the personal life... More
