Former Residence of Guo Moruo

Former Residence of Guo Moruo is situated in a traditional courtyard (Siheyuan) on the west bank of Shichahai, with a gold wooden tablet engraved by Deng Yingchao on east gate identifying it. It is one of the courtyards of famous people in Beijing. Guo Moruo, a renowned Chinese writer, poet, dramatist, scholar, historian and paleographer, spent the remaining 15 years of his life there. The courtyard is now used as a museum, with the east and west wing-rooms being applied to showrooms of the life of Guo Moruo. Guo Moruo made fantastic contributions to Chinese culture and science.
He moved into the courtyard at Shichahai in November 1963, and remained there until his death on June 12th, 1978. Formally as a garden of a prince of the Qing Dynasty (1644 -1911), the courtyard was designated as a cultural relic in 1982 on Guo's 90th Birthday Anniversary, and opened to the public as a museum in 1988. Now, the museum stands as a reminder of the live and works of Guo Moruo, with poetry, manuscripts and the flowers that were planted during his life.
