Storyline

Zhongshan Warship Museum, with an investment of 600 million yuan, opened Monday in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, 12 years after the warship was salvaged in 1997.

Placed in the center of the museum, the huge body of Zhongshan Warship is extremely eye-catching, with ship-based weapons refixed.

“Zhongshan Warship is the biggest movable cultural relic in our country, and we salvaged more than 3,000 cultural relics and placed them in the museum,” said Yin Zengtao, the head of the leading team of Zhongshan Warship conservation.

Yin also said that Zhongshan Warship experienced five big events in Chinese history, namely the Constitutional Protection Movement (1917-1918), the Movement for Nation Protection (1915-1916), Sun Yat-sen Armor Defense in 1924, Zhongshan Warship Incident in 1926, and the Battle of Defending Wuhan in 1938, so it’s an epitome of Chinese history.

Among the 3, 000 cultural relics, 51 are identified as the national First-Level cultural relic, in which the most precious ones are the intact telegram paper buried under the Yangtze river for 59 years.

“The paper witnessed the ups and downs as well as many solemn and stirring moments of Zhongshan Warship. It contains much information that we cannot find out in books. It signifies the evidence of history, and is first-hand resource that we can trust,” said Wang Ruihua, the director of the museum.

The 830-ton Zhongshan Warship, originally named Yong Feng Warship, is a Chinese gunboat built in Japan in 1913 and later renamed in 1925 in honor of Sun Zhongshan (also Sun Yat-sen 1866-1925), the founder of the Republic of China. It was blown up by Japanese jet in the Battle of Defending Wuhan in 1938, and salvaged in 1997.
