Madam Sòng is lovingly venerated by the Chinese as the wife of Sun Yatsen, founder of the Republic of China. Set in a lovely garden, her mansion, the former home of the father of Puyi (China’s last emperor) displays her personal items, pictures, clothing and books. The highlight, however, is the museum to the side which houses a very comprehensive exhibition on Madam Sòng's fascinating life, including the car given to her by Stalin, which comes with good English captions.

Volunteers conduct free English tours within the house.
