A museum dedicated to the China’s Xinhai Revolution, which overthrew the Qing Dynasty, reopened in Hubei province on Saturday to mark the 100th anniversary of the uprising. Xinhua reported that the renovated attraction features more than 200 items, such as photos, models and recreations of historic scenes. The museum was once the headquarters of the revolutionary army, led by Dr Sun Yat-sen, who eventually founded the first Chinese republic a year later.
