The museum of Sanzao native son Lin Wei-min, who was a pioneer of China's Labor Movement, reopened March 16, 2021 with a larger exhibition area, new exhibits, and more-sophisticated multimedia equipment.
As the first chairman of the All-China Federation of Trade Unions, Lin fought for national liberation and to defend worker rights and interests. He was born in 1887 in Yuyue Village, Sanzao Town, Jinwan District, and passed at age 40 in 1927.
