Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial House
This building preserved in it’s architectural heritage of Macau, houses a number of documents, all paying homage to the residency of the late Dr. Sun Yat Sen. He was a driving force of the Chinese Republic Revolution and the mentor to many of it’s purveyors prior to it’s overthrowing the regime of the Qing Dynasty. He was known for his charming and charismatic personality which united the Chinese, and is therefore considered by many to be the “Father of the Nation”. The house bears witness to his short but significant stay in Macau at the beginning of the 20th century. While fleeing the power of the imperial Mandarin forces, he tried to move his supporters in order to plan for the establishment of a new regime in China. In Macau he received the support of friends and associates, who held roles of great political and social relevance at the time in the region. This museum pays homage to him and his stay in this pivotal time in the cultural revolution.
