The Former Residence of Sun Yat-Sen is a small European country-style house the overseas Chinese living in Canada bought for the Chinese revolutionary Sun Yat-sen. He lived in this house from 1918 with his wife Soong Ching-ling. After his death, Sun's wife continued to live here until 1937. The vast majority of the indoor display products are original.

The Moller Villa

The Moller Villa was built at 30 South Shanxi Road in 1936 with particular interior decorations. It is said the villa was designed in accordance with an Andersen's Fairytales-style castle in the dream of the owner's daughter.
