I last visited this museum in the 90's. I was awe inspired by it and bought the complete works of Lu Xun in English. Much of these books I read and online commentaries offered a much greater understanding.
I loved this museum. But it has...More
Along with Chen Duxiu, Lu Xun was a major contributor to the modernization of Chinese culture. The fact that there are so many well-visited museums like this one commemorating him shows how respected he is today for his contribution to the revolutionary movement.
The museum is quite small and situated in Lu Xun Park. They limit the number of people entering, which at least limits the typical crowds that one experiences in Shanghai. It is an interesting collection, but it would certainly benefit any visitors to educate themselves...More

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
