Tianjin Boxer Uprising Memorial @ 吕祖堂


No.18 Hejia Lane, Ruyi’an Street,
Hongqiao District, Tianjin

LuzuTang Museum, or the Boxer Museum.

The small courtyard was built in 1433. During the Boxer Uprising (some call it rebellion) in 1900, Cao Futian 曹福田 (the leader of Qian fraction 乾字团首领) set his quarter here. The gov renovated it in 1985 and set it up as a memorial – it’s the only 义和团坛口 relic of Boxers in the country.

The simple exhibits are mostly photos, and some of their claims I’ll have to disagree. The language and the mindset is pre-loving-the-west.
