The Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen (Chinese: 上海中山故居; pinyin: Shànghǎi Zhōngshān Gùjū), located at 7 Xiangshan Road (aka Rue Molière) in the French Concession area of Shanghai, China, near Fuxing Park to the east,[1] was the residence of the Chinese revolutionary Dr Sun Yat-sen (1866–1925)[2][3]

Sun Yat-sen lived in this house from 1918 with his wife Soong Ching Ling.[1] After his death, Sun's wife continued to live here until 1937.[4] There is now an exhibition centre presenting Sun Yat-sen's life, together with some artifacts and a statue of Sun Yat-sen outside.
