Xin Tian Di’s Communist History

The inspiration for the architecture of Xin Tian Di came from the site where the Chinese Communist Party first met in 1921, in a gray building that sits in the middle of Xin Tian Di. This building is now the Museum of the First National Congress Hall of the Communist Party, and visitors can see a waxwork replica of that first meeting, along with an exhibition hall full of relics, documents, and photos.
