    The style of the architecture is a non-typical Hubei(Chu state) style. The architectural design enlightens the hubei's culture. A must go.

    With this being the 70th anniversary of the founding of present-day China, I came here for my history lesson. Nice choice...

    Built on the site of Hanyang's old iron- and steel-works, this museum commemorates reforming Viceroy Zhang Zhidong at the end of the imperial period. In the late 19th century Zhang reformed industry, trade and education and was open to incorporating Western ideas.

    This museum makes few concessions to non-Chinese speakers, so I was fortunate to have a translator. I still didn't understand everything, especially the long documentary film. It was a complex time in Chinese history, particularly the aftermath of the first Sino-Japanese war. But the modern museum (opened 2018) is spectacular and there are many interesting photos of Wuhan's industrial past. Much of the early machinery was imported from Europe, and Wuhan was an important point of contact with the West at the end of the 19th century.

    To be honest, I don't know exactly where the museum is as we came by taxi, but I believe it is on the south bank of the Hanshui River.

    Well worth a visit!

    This is one of the residences of Soong Qing-Ling, a prominent political leader under Mao's dictatorship. She was the third-wife of Sun Yat-Sen (leader of the 1911's revolution), and after his death she covered the highest positions in the government.
    Soong Qing-Ling is the only person to have been appointed as Honorary President of People's Republic of China. She was also consider the "Mother of the Nation".
    A bigger collection of items can be observed in Shanghai, were she spent most of hers life.
