Dr Sun Yat-sen was a world-renowned revolutionary who devoted his entire life to overthrowing the Qing Dynasty and setting up the Republic of China. His achievements were recognised and admired not only by the local and overseas Chinese, but also by the global community.
Dr Sun had a close relationship with Hong Kong, where he received his secondary and university education. Hong Kong was also the cradle of his revolutionary thoughts and uprising plans. Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum will highlight Dr Sun's intimate connections with Hong Kong, so that local citizens and overseas tourists alike will be able to reminisce about the activities of this great Chinese statesman.
Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum has two permanent exhibitions displaying a number of precious historical artefacts. Supplemented by a wide range of audiovisual programmes, the Museum gives a comprehensive overview of the life and career of Dr Sun, and Hong Kong's vital role in the reform movements and revolutionary activities in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
