With donation of some 600 varied machines from his private collection, Wang Fuxi founded the Tianjin Machine Tool Museum in 2015 at two sites in Tianjin. The museum’s collection encompasses machinery of different sizes from all over the world, such as old sewing machines and old telephones. The oldest pieces in the museum are Swiss mechanical tools for making watches dating to the 1830s.
