In a move to enhance the visitor experience, 23 isolation barriers were recently removed from the Lu Xun Native Place scenic area in Shaoxing, Zhejiang province.

Formerly obstructed areas like the ancestral banquet hall have particularly drawn attention, with visitors relishing in the newfound ability to freely explore. The removal of the barriers allows tourists not only to enter but also to capture memorable moments within these historical spaces.

"I expected barriers and isolation lines, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that many exhibition halls are now completely open," said a tourist from Shanghai.

According to officials from the Shaoxing Cultural Tourism Group, the previous exhibition layout, which limited visitors to observing from a distance, did not effectively convey the essence of the site.

By opening up more exhibition spaces and removing barriers, the aim is to enable visitors to better connect with the environment and gain a deeper understanding of Lu Xun's legacy.

Lu Xun (1881-1936), whose real name was Zhou Shuren, was known for his versatility as a short story writer, essayist, literary critic and editor. His revolutionary stance, care for the people and spirit of exploration have inspired generations of Chinese.
