Lu Xun Museum
The Lu Xun Museum was opened in 1999 and is a spacious modern museum that pays tribute to one of China's major literary figures of the 20th century.
Lu Xun originally 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 scathing works criticizing China's Confucian bound society.
His most famous works are 'The True Story of Ah Q' and 'Madman's Diary'. The Corridor of Books in the museum, lined with many international translations of Lu Xun's work, is an effective display of the breadth of his readership.
Perhaps Lu Xun's greatest legacy was his role in heading the move towards the creation of simplified Chinese script.
