As a native born in Nanjing and a person who thinks he knows a lot about the history, culture and art of the motherland, he has to admit that after visiting this museum, he has a relatively comprehensive understanding of the traditional culture and skills of Nanjing. The museum is located in Ganxi's former residence (also known as Ganjiayuan). It can be traced back to Ganluo, a 12-year-old prime minister in the Warring States Period, who later settled in Nanjing. In modern times, the members of Gan's family are mainly folk artists and scholars. Therefore, it would be more appropriate to regard their residence as a representative and a museum containing the folk customs of Nanjing. The museum is not very large. It has a detailed road map and the tickets are not expensive. If you just look at the cultural relics on display, it will be finished in 1.5-2 hours. There are not only Gan's family introduction, exhibition of old architectural style, and natural scenery such as rockery garden and pond, but also branches that highlight various arts and crafts cultures of old Nanjing, such as paper-cut hall (including the introduction of Hu Jiazhi's life and his paper-cut works, aged 113), Yun brocade hall (with large cloud brocade machine and handicraft exhibition), wood carving Hall (miniature). Sculpture and wood sculpture works, as well as clay man, kite and other handicraft introductions, the most important thing is that handicraft artists live production demonstration, watching their painstaking and careful production, lamenting the intangible cultural heritage is more precious today, and sincerely hope that they can continue these skills and works as inheritors. If visitors want to visit, they especially recommend Sunday, because there is a performance of Nanjing Baiju from 14:30 p.m. every Sunday. As soon as they enter the left-handed pavilion, Baiju is a variety of performances using traditional Nanjing dialect as a means of expression, including cross talk, etc. On the stage, several girls tap out rhythm with silver chopsticks, dishes and bamboo boards, and then talk and sing some classic Nanjing folk customs and harmony. Funny things, such as famous food in Nanjing, famous places and historic sites in Nanjing, are accompanied by four men playing with Pipa and erhu instruments, presenting an artistic form similar to that of Beijing rhyme drum and Suzhou commentary. It lasted about an hour. After that, Nanjing shouted for about 15 minutes (one-way cross talk), which was also very funny and wonderful. The dialects used in these plays are the most authentic and standard Nanjing dialects (the "Nanpu dialect" spoken by the younger generation of Nanjing people is totally deviated from the original Nanjing dialect, not the original Nanjing dialect at all, but the Baiju dialect is the most appropriate one here). Whether you want to experience the real Nanjing literary and artistic flavor of the foreign tourists, or the local citizens who want to feel the real Nanjing traditional customs, you should definitely listen to them. Look, the most important thing is that it's completely free and included in the tickets. Nanjing is the capital of Six Dynasties and ten dynasties. With Nanjing becoming a mega-city, the development of modernization and commercialization, the ancient city is gradually losing its original ancient charm while changing with each passing day. I hope that more people will visit and learn about it and contribute a positive energy to the heritage of Nanjing's traditional non-heritage.
Now the former residence has become a scenic spot, specializing in the development of traditional crafts in Jinling.

Founded in the Jiaqing period of the Qing Dynasty, commonly known as "99 rooms and a half", it is the largest private residence in China. Ganxi was a famous scholar in the late Qing Dynasty. He had many works. He visited Wu and Yue with his father Ganfu. He collected more than 100,000 books and built a library called Tianjin Gathering Building. The Gan family is good at Beijing-Kunming art and has set up a study club. They have a lot of experience in Beijing Opera, Kunqu Opera and Guqin. Yan Fengying, an artist of Huangmei Opera, is also the daughter-in-law of the Gan family.
In Ganxi's former residence, there are many intangible cultural heritages about to be lost in Nanjing. The performance of Nanjing Baiju in the small theatre always attracts a lot of audiences and is full of seats. Paper-cut, gourd painting, wood carving, micro-carving art, velvet production and so on are all very rare folk handicraft. As a native Nanjing people, there is always an inseparable feeling here. Festival, I like the Nanjing folklore displayed here very much. Want to know Nanjing, contact you from here!
