The Memorial Hall, not far from the Yangjialing Headquarters, is probably one of the best of its kind in China. It was founded in July 1950 in Yan'an City of Shaanxi Province, and it is one of the earliest revolutionary memorial halls in China. It was built in July 1950 and was previously called the Yan'an Revolutionary Museum. It was open to the public in February 1951.
The memorial hall boasts a comprehensive collection of historical literature, graphs and photos dating from the establishment of the "United Front against Japanese Invasion" to the opening of the Seventh General Conference of the Chinese Communist Party.
The main hall houses a huge collection of artifacts from the 1930-50s, including genuine footballs, sewing machines, Marxist books by Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky translated into Chinese and hundreds of communist weapons. Especially noteworthy is a white horse (it has been made into a specimen) that is said to have carried Mao Zedong.
The exhibition halls occupy 3,200 square meters, displaying 1,300 revolutionary cultural relics, more than 200 photos, as well as auxiliary exhibits like graphs, paintings, sculptures and models. All the exhibits introduce the founding of Northern Shaanxi Revolutionary Bases and the 13 years of revolutionary activities of the Communist Party of China. The memorial hall has launched the Exhibition of Yan'an Revolutionary Cultural Relics and the Exhibition of Yan'an Spirit, and has staged road shows in other places.
