Ancient Bed Museum (江南百床馆)

The first of its kind in China, this exhibition of ancient beds from the Jiangnan region displays a collection of finely crafted beds—from the Ming and Qing dynasties to modern times. With exquisite design and craftsmanship, these are more than just items of furniture, but excellently-preserved examples of Chinese folk art.

Woodcarving Exhibition Hall (江南木雕陈列馆)

An antique residence famous for its collection of beautiful wood-carved items, this impressive mansion, once owned by the Xu family, is filled with beautifully carved pieces including furniture, ornaments and window frames decorated with birds, beasts, flowers and even historical figures. A collection of the most valuable wood-carved antiques is displayed in the main hall.

Lizhi Academy (立志书院)

Lizhi Academy, which is located to the east of Mao Dun's Former Residence. Mao Dun was a well-known Chinese novelist, cultural critic and journalist. Lizhi Academy was first founded by local gentry in 1865 and it was there where Mao Dun spent his early school years. Many years later, the school was transformed into a museum in honor of Mao Dun. Above the front door of the academy hangs a sign with Chinese characters "lizhi" which means "aspire", thus "Academy of Aspiration."

Mao Dun's Former Residence (茅盾故居)

The former home of this well-known Chinese novelist, cultural critic and journalist is located on 17 Guanqian Street. The wooden complex is comprised of four gates, two compounds and a total living space of 450 square meters (4,800 sq ft). The residence faces south and is divided into two units, both east and west, bought on separate occasions by Mao Dun's great grandfather. One room that opens onto the street once served as Mao Dun's study. In spite of the room's simplicity, it emanates a learned grandeur typical of such an illustrious family.
