The palace was originally erected in the Qing Dynasty as the Yamen, meaning the government office, for the Governor General of two Provinces: Jiangsu and Zhejiang. It was also the traveling palace for two emperors of Qing Dynasty, Kangxi and Qianlong. It has a history of more than 600 years.

The palace has been used as the:

Administrative office of several Governor Generals of Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces in the Qing Dynasty;

Palace for the Heavenly Kingdom of Peace (Taiping Tianguo) during the Taiping Rebellion;

President Palace for Temporary Central Government of the Republic of China;

Headquarter for the Army of Northern Expedition Period;

Headquarter for Jiangsu Province, Jiangsu Army Commander, Provincial Governor General;

President Palace for The Republic of China

After the Chinese Communist Party took power in 1949, the palace was used as the provincial government office until 1998.

The place now houses the China Modern History Museum that exhibits historical documents in China’s recent history.
