Mao Dun (1896-1981) was the pen name of Shen Yanbin, a revolutionary writer and public figure in China. His former residence, a traditional Si He Yuan (quadrangle home) with two courtyards was rebuilt into a museum and is open to the public. His first novel, Midnight, was a milestone in the development of revolutionary writing in China. The two exhibition rooms hold about 200 photos and over 400 manuscripts, papers and documents from his life. The rooms are kept as they appeared during his lifetime.
