"Dr Sun Yat-sen and Modern China" Permanent Exhibition
Dr Sun Yat-sen was both a revolutionary forerunner of modern China and an epoch-making figure in turning China from a monarchy into a republic. As a dedicated revolutionary, he traveled across the country and launched campaigns around the world, leaving his mark in many places both at home and abroad. This exhibition aims at explaining how Dr Sun was transformed from an aspiring medical student into a renowned revolutionary leader. Supplemented by a scene setting and an array of historical photographs, the invaluable artefacts will help reconstruct the legendary life of this great Chinese statesman. Visitors will not only be able to get a thorough understanding on his studies and revolutionary campaign, but also understand why Dr Sun admitted that he got his revolutionary ideas in Hong Kong.
