Shanghai Memorial Hall/Former Residence of Lu Xun
The Former Residence of Lu Xun

The famous writer, Lu Xun (lǔ xùn 鲁迅), was born in a small city south of Shanghai called Shaoxing in 1881. This man with humble origins, came to be recognized as one of the greatest twentieth century Chinese writers. The main focus of Lu Xun's work was to describe the lives of the poorer people in Chinese society in a plain style of prose. Known as the "father of modern Chinese literature" because of his role in developing the modern style of Chinese prose as well as in helping simplify the Chinese script, Lu Xun was a prolific (duō chǎn de 多产的) writer who translated science-fiction novels into Chinese just as easily as he penned scathing critiques of Confucianism (rú jiào 儒教) and the alternately submissive and arrogant Chinese character. Extolled as a political revolutionary (Mao Zedong penned an inscription on Lu Xun's tomb which lies at the north end of the park), Lu Xun was himself deliberately never a member of the Communist party. One can only imagine what his scathing (xī lì de 犀利的) pen would have had to say about China's current headlong (cāng cù di 仓促地) rush into capitalism.

Shanghai Art Museum

altSituated in West Nanjing Road (nán jīng lù 南京路) in People's Square, Shanghai Art Museum has 12 exhibition halls, covering more than 5,000 square meters. The building itself is a charming area to walk around as it used to be the club house of Shanghai's Race Club built in the 1930's.

It was renovated as a museum in March 2000 and interestingly during the process some distinctly Chinese features were added to this British style building. These are the wooden structures which you can see next to the front gate. They're a feature of traditional Chinese architecture in palaces and temples. The structure is held together through hammering together wooden joins and not a single piece of metal bolts or screws are used.
