Xu Guangqi was a famous scientist in the late Ming Dynasty. His achievements in astronomy, agriculture, mathematics and military affairs deserve praise from later generations. This Memorial combines pictures, images and historical materials to introduce Xu Guangqi's life, achievements and noble character. The memorial hall is not big. It can be visited in 30 minutes.
Xu Jiahui was originally Xu Guangqi's hometown. Xu Guangqi was from Songjiang County. At that time, there was no concept of Shanghai. The archway of Prince Taibao and Bachelor of Daming was followed by the cross. New academic knowledge from the West could not save the end of the Daming Dynasty. Xu Guangqi Memorial Hall is also rarely visited, but it is just next to Xujiahui Metro Station with convenient transportation. The restaurant is small but delicately designed, but now only the old lady and the old lady dance and play chess.
Xu Guangqi Memorial Hall is composed of Zhaobi, Stele Gallery, Chamber and Hall. It is divided into four major exhibitions: Xu Guangqi's life, Agricultural Administration Complete Book and Geometry Original, Chongzhen Almanac and Xu's Yiyan, Xu Guangqi and Shanghai. The Memorial exhibits Xu Guangqi's portraits, manuscripts of home scripts, Handbooks of agricultural experiments, Ming-engraved Agricultural Administration Complete Book, Qing-engraved Geometric Original Book, the first world map to be introduced to China, and a large number of watercolor paintings of Xu Guangqi, Matteo Ricci, Tang Ruowang and Nanhuai Ren, which are currently in the Tushanwan Gallery of San Francisco University. Precious information.
When I went to Guangqi Park at eleventh hour, I found a memorial hall of Xu Guangqi. Although it was not a big one, it was well-decorated and air-conditioned, so I wandered in it alone. Inside, Xu Guangqi's relevant experiences and materials are quite complete. Classics, charts, models, sound and light are displayed in all directions. The statue of Xu Guangqi in the courtyard was bathed in the brilliant sunshine and looked at me quietly.
In order to commemorate Xu Guangqi, a famous scientist of the Ming Dynasty, and to make his literary and historical status and modern scientific thought have a place of "foothold", in early 2005, Guangqi Park was rebuilt as Xu Guangqi Memorial Hall and became one of the most historic science education bases in Shanghai.
This has become one of the most famous scenic spots in Xujiahui. This memorial is in Xu Guangqi's park. The shuttle area is not large, but there are detailed records of Xu Guangqi's life. His contribution was still very great, so we built this memorial hall to remember this great man. By the way, the greening of Xuguangqi Park is still very good. There is also a Xu Guangqi cemetery in this park. It is suggested that you visit Xu Guangqi Memorial Hall and visit Xu Guangqi's cemetery by the way.
It is no wonder that the attractions at home are easily overlooked. Today, because of following others, I took this opportunity to go in and see what happened. On one side is a small park, small but elegant with pavilions, ponds and archways. On the other hand, it introduces some of Xu Guangqi's life and astronomical characters and objects, which are quite interesting.
Located at No. 17 Nandan Road, Xuhui District, Shanghai (Guangqi Park). In order to commemorate Xu Guangqi, a famous scientist of the Ming Dynasty, and to make his literary and historical status and modern scientific thought have a place of "foothold", Guangqi Park was rebuilt as Xu Guangqi Memorial Hall in early 2005, and became one of the most historic bases of popular science education in Shanghai. Another story is told in the picture of Xu Guang's astronomical instruments. In the late Ming Dynasty, "Datong calendar" was not corrected for a long time, which resulted in great errors, and the prediction of solar and lunar eclipses was always inaccurate. Xu Guangqi, who was seventy years old at this time, was still personally guided and observed by Emperor Chongzhen. In 1633, Xu Guangqi was not in danger. By this time, most of the "Chongzhen Calendar" had been approved. The compilation of Chongzhen Calendar has laid the foundation for astronomical legislation in China in the past 300 years and has epoch-making significance.
Xu Guangqi Memorial Hall is located in Nandan Road, Guangqi Park, free of tickets. It is divided into four parts to introduce his life, achievements and historical evaluation. Among the exhibits, Xu Guangqi's portraits at the beginning of the last century, as well as the first copy of the world map introduced into China, are rare treasures.
