“Sun Yat-Sen: His Life & Legacy” Exhibit at Pacific Heritage Museum

February 15, 2011 - March 31, 2011

CHSA co-presents the Sun Yat-Sen exhibit through March 31, 2011

Pacific Heritage Museum, 608 Commercial St, San Francisco, CA

Open 10 am–4 pm (except Sunday)

Born at a time when China was weak and profoundly humiliated by Western powers, Sun Yat-Sen vowed to restore his people’s national pride and to establish an American-style government. It would take him 30 years–half of it in exile abroad–before he established the Republic of China. His vision would in turn pave the way for Taiwan’s transformation into a modern, democratic society.

On the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Republic of China, the Pacific Heritage Museum will open an exhibition commemorating the country’s national father.
