Sun Yat Sen Memorial House

Macau Outer Harbour Attractions

Sun Yat Sen Memorial House is in mock-Moorish style with wide verandahs and spacious courtyards. Dr. Sun was the first Chinese to practice western medicine in Macau and has been called the 'Father of Modern China'. The House bears witness to his short but extremely significant sojourn in Macau in the early 20th century before he travelled around the world.

The House itself is a three-storey high building with ornate verandahs and spacious courtyards and is typical of its epoch. The House is currently open to the public and it showcases his letters, photos, books, personal belongings and old newspapers accounts of his life.

History, Highlights and Features

Dr. Sun Yat Sen was a Chinese revolutionary, the mentor and driving force of the Chinese republican revolution that overcame and overthrew the already weakened reign of the Qing Dynasty in 1912. He was the first provisional president when the Republic of China was founded and was a uniting figure during the fragile era of post-imperial China.

He remains unique among 20th-century Chinese politicians for being widely revered and remembered in both mainland China and Taiwan. In addition, on both sides of the Straits he is revered as father of the nation. Formerly called The Mansion of Sun, it features well-maintained wide stairways, laquered floors and period furniture. It was originally built in 1912 and was reconstructed in 1933 so understandably it's a well-cherished local attraction.
