Huqingyu Tang Chinese Medicine Museum is a professional museum of Chinese Traditional Herbal Medicine and a key cultural relics and historic site under the protection of the government in China as well. The Hu Qingyu Hall was built in 1874. It ranks with the Beijing Tongren Hall as the two well-known south and north national medicine authentic stores in China. The Huqingyu Tang Chinese Medicine Museum is the only Chinese herbal medicine museum in China housed in the ancient buildings of the famous Hangzhou Chinese herbal medicine shop. Begun as a pharmacy in 1874 by an official of the imperial court (and still a functioning factory and dispensary today), Huqingyu Tang Chinese Medicine Museum (Hqngy Tng Zhngyo Bwgun, ҩ) is as impressive for its architecture as for its contents.
