The man behind the desk was also our guide. He was very funny and informative and kindly offered us free tea and took our photos. Very interesting to read about Sun Yat Sen.

We have visited other former homes of Dr Sun Yat Sen in China so this added to our knowledge. A small but well equipped Museum with some very interesting exhibits. Well worth the visit.
