Shanghai Children's Palace

Located on West Yanan Road, Shanghai Children's Palace was founded in 1953 by Song Qingling (wife of Dr.Sun Yat-sen, a famous political leader in China herself). The main body of the Children's Palace in Shanghai was a private villa of an English merchant in old Shanghai. It was started to build in 1918 and lasted 6 years, so it was completed in 1924. Most of its construction materials are qualified marbles carried from Europe, so it is also called "Marble Mansion". The building features marble lined hallways, wide curving staircases and a large front hall complete with ornate fireplaces, grand chandeliers and French windows.
