Museum of Peasant Movement Training Institute

Peasant Movement Institute

The Peasant Movement Institute occupies the former Confucian Temple that was originally built in 1370 but none of the temples statues or other relics remain. The Institute organised six training classes during the First Co-operation between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party of China, with the sixth class taking place here led, by Mao Zedong who worked here as director from May to September 1926. Xiao Chunu, Zhou Enlai and Peng Pai were among the 20-odd staff members. It was here that the 327 trainees studied theories and methods of the peasant movement, received strict military training and took part in important social activities. Upon graduation, they traveled throughout the country to spearhead peasant campaigns against imperialism and feudalism, making significant contributions to the Chinese revolution.

Peasant Movement Institute


In 1953, people began to regard this site as the "Mao Zedong Peasant Movement Institute" and it was later proclaimed as a historic place by the state. Now it is a museum covering the recent China revolutionary history. On show are the classrooms, dormitories and offices which have been arranged in their original arrangement.
