Introduction

Inspiring Insights into Dr Sun Yat-sen and His Time

12 November - 5 December 2016
 
1/F Lobby, Hong Kong Museum of History
 
Presented by

Hong Kong Museum of History

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Dr Sun Yat-sen, the Hong Kong Museum of History now introduce Dr Sun's revolutionary career to members of the public – with a special focus on the interests of younger visitors – through a dynamic mix of fascinating images, videos and multimedia programmes. Towards the end of the Qing dynasty, conflicts such as the First Sino-Japanese War, the occupation of Beijing by the Eight-Nation Alliance and the Russo-Japanese War, as well as major incidents in China including the Hundred Days' Reform, the constitutionalist movement and the May Fourth Movement, sowed the seeds for Dr Sun's revolutionary cause and also provided him with opportunities to advance it. His revolution thus rode the tide of history, and this exhibition shows Dr Sun's life and times from a variety of starting points to provide a comprehensive view of the man who changed China.
