There are three urban villages that remain in Futian: Huanggang Village, Xiasha Village and Shuiwei Village. Family temples, archways, and village museums show the rich histories of the villages. At Huanggang Village Museum, which is the first village-level museum in China, there are collections of documents, articles and photos showing the village’s past and president.

Built in May 2005, Xiasha Village Museum records the 800 years of history of Xiasha Village with traditional Cantonese-style collections featuring relics, sculptures, paintings and photos. Shuiwei Stone Museum is the largest community museum for precious stone collections in the city and the first community museum in China. There are more than 600 stones collected from all across the country. Other collections include paintings and calligraphies from famous scholars and artists in Chinese history such as Tang Yin, Zhang Daqian and Fan Zeng, and other cultural relics from the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1912) dynasties.
