Lu Xun Museum

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Lu Xun from 1881 to 1936 was regarded as the founder of modern Chinese writing and was a respected scholar and teacher. He was also part of the anti-imperialist movement of May 4 1919 and his supreme legacy was heading the move towards the creation of simplified Chinese script. The Lu Xun Museum, found in the northwestern part of the city, was opened in 1956, to mark the 20th anniversary of the writer death.
The museum is split into 2 sections where part of the site is Lu Xun's former home where he lived from 1924 to 1926 and the other is a large exhibition hall.  In the exhibition hall visitors will find the author works on display and more than 10,000 manuscripts, photographs, journals, letters and other individual objects. There is also a copy of the entry he made in his diary on the day of his death. A section of the hall showcases Lu Xuns library of 16,000 books, many of the volumes of which were bound by the author himself.

Lu Xun Museum is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in China. It is worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place will leave a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
