WUHAN - A museum that honors the 1911 Revolution, also known as the Xinhai Revolution, reopened Saturday after renovation to commemorate the centenary of the uprising at Wuchang in central Hubei province.

More than 200 items that illustrate the revolution, such as photos, telegraphs, models and and simulative historic scenes, are on display.

Located near the famous Yellow Crane Tower, the museum was once the headquarters of the revolutionary army.

The movement's leader, Sun Yat-sen, overturned the ruling Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) after the revolution on Oct 10, 1911 and founded the Republic of China in 1912.

Commemorative gatherings were also held in provinces of Guangdong, where Sun was born, and Jiangsu, where the capital of the Republic of China was located.
