Introduction

The Shi Kefa Museum is also called the Temple of Lord Shi. It is located by the moat of the city of Yangzhou. First built in the Qianlong period (1735-1796) of the Qing Dynasty, it was reconstructed in the ninth year of the reign of Tongzhi (1870). With its gate facing the south, its tomb on the east and temple on the west, it is a memorial of the national hero Shi Kefa (1602-1645), who resisted the Manchu invasion at the end of the Ming dynasty. In the museum, visitors can view the handwriting of Shi Kefa and other precious cultural relics, and learn the stories of Shi Kefa and other national heroes. In addition, in the scenic area of the museum tourists can visit the exhibition hall for historical materials about the Guangling Guqin School. The exhibition displays cultural artifacts including the traditional music instrument known as "guqin" (ancient zither), and ancient paintings. Sometimes visitors may also enjoy guqin performances here.
