This is actually a memorial dedicated to the 5 famous outcasts residing in Hainan. Nothing much to see and some of the exhibits were badly maintain. Very limited English narrations. Bring someone who reads Chinese and perhaps you'd get some useful info. Maintenance and cleanliness is poor and wonder what they do with the entrance fee collected.

Signages are all in Chinese. Non-Chinese educated visitors won't have clue as to whats happening. Why were the 5 officials banished? Why did a subsequent emperor build the halls in their memories? The stone statues of the 5 lords have only Chinese text. Non-Chinese educated visitors will be at a loss trying to figure out what is being said. The... More

Maybe I've been soiled living and travelling in China. However this place did not feel very old. Most of the things there were copies and it has been heavily restored. Not worth your time unless you have a lot of time. On the plus side it was 30 RMB per person to get in so if you want to visit... More
