Lu Xun Museum (Shanghai)

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.
The Lu Xun Museum was opened in 1999 and is a spacious modern museum that pays homage to one of China's major literary figures of the 20th century. Lu Xun formerly trained to be a doctor, but appalled by the political and social conditions of the time, he became an author and playwright and wrote a series of wounding works criticizing China's Confucian bound society. His most renowned works are The True Story of Ah Q and Madman's Diary. The Corridor of Books in the museum, lined with several international translations of Lu Xun's work, is a valuable exhibit of the breadth of his distribution.  Perhaps Lu Xun's utmost heritage was his role in heading the move towards the creation of simplified Chinese script.
The 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.
