Visitors could visit Yifei Zhi Jia, a gallery transformed from local houses near the Twins Bridges in memorial of a notable Chinese painter and observe the books, paint brushes and manuscripts belonging to the great painter.

It was in 1982 that Chen first visited Zhouzhuang. What he saw then reminded him of his hometown. Marveled at the town's views, Chen said that Zhouhuang is "beautiful when seen from different angles".

Two years later, the painter visited Zhouzhuang again and crafted a picture, which was later exhibited among some 38 canvases by him in a New York gallery.

Memory of Hometown, which depicted the Twin Bridges in Zhouzhuang, was one of the pieces on display and garnered world attention for Zhouzhuang since then.
