Introduction to Museum of Huangpu Military Academy (黄埔军校)

The Museum of Huangpu Military Academy also known as The Former Site of Whampoa Military Academy is a famous historical site in Guangzhou. It is located in Changzhou Island of Huangpu District in Guangzhou.

The Huangpu Military Academy was a military academy built by Sun Yat-sen with the assistance of the Communist Party of China and the Soviet Union during the period of first cooperation between the Kuoingdang and the Communist Party. With the aim of training military officials in the mission of “building a revolutionary army and saving China from danger”, the Huangpu Military Academy played a quite important role in China’s early modern history and military history.

The original campus of the military academy was destroyed by Japanese bombing in 1938. In 1996, the Guangzhou Municipal Government restored the principal campus of the academy to its original form.

The Museum of Huangpu Military Academy has a rich collection of historical relics to see. It is one of the important places to know more about the history of modern China, history and China’s military history. There is quite a lot to see, ranging from the museum of more recent tanks and weapons to the academy itself and the former customs house or the San Yat Sen memorial building.
