About First National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party

The Museum of the First National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party is the site where Mao Ze Dong and a further eleven members of various communist groups from around China met for the first time as the National Communist Party.

The meeting took place on 23 July 1921 and marked the birth of the party. It was soon discovered by the police, requiring the participants to flee from the site.

Today, the Museum of the First National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party allows visitors to see the meeting place, with a reconstruction of the event.
