Rìshēngchāng Financial House Museum

Museum in Pingyao

Not to be missed, this museum began life as a humble dye shop in the late 18th century before its tremendous success as a business saw it transform into China’s first draft bank (1823), eventually expanding to 57 branches nationwide. The museum has nearly 100 rooms, including offices, living quarters and a kitchen, as well as several cheques from the days of yore.
