Another Nanchang attraction conveniently situated in the downtown core, the August 1st Uprising Museum (Bayi Jinianguan) makes a nice addition to a day-long circuit that could include the Tengwang Pavilion, Bayi Park, Youmin Temple, People's Square and perhaps even the Bu Xing Road pedestrian street if there's time. The museum is composed of two buildings, one the museum proper and the other the Former Headquarters of the People's Liberation Army.

An impressive, majestic building looking over the Gan river to the west, the Tenwang Pavilion was originally built in memory of a Tang prince over 1,000 years ago, but has been rebuilt 26 times since then, the latest of these reconstructions taking place in 1989. Surrounded by rockeries, gardens, pavilions and ponds, the exterior of the building is as worthwhile to visit, if not more so, than the interior.
