This is a important part of Chinese history cross over Qing Dynasty, Republic and then Communist China. This puppet emperor was controlled by Japanese government when they invaded China. Really not much real historical stuff left except a well maintained small palace, yet the story and history still bring me back to image what it like in those days. Even... More

This building is a sad reminder and remnant of the last Qing emperor's life and how he was manipulated by the invading Japanese. Puyi's life is laid out in photos, and you can walk around the rooms in his "palace." The rooms are sadly falling into some disrepair. We took a guided audio tour through the buildings. Sometimes it was... More

My son and I visited the palace as part of our war museum tour of northern China. The palace is easily reached by metered taxi from Changchun Railway Station at a cost of 11 yuan. The subway is also an option from the Railway Station. The entry fee is 80 yuan, and we had difficulty finding the ticket office, which... More

the entrance of this palace is located some distance away from the subway station... actually they can set up the entrance along the road when you exit the subway but you need to walk for 15mins to reach... priced at 80rmb for the entrance fee but is worth to understand how the last emperor puyi was manipulated by the japanese,...

If you have watched the movie "Thd Last Emperor", you will appreciate this attraction better. From an emperor to an ordinary citizen, Puyi life is more than the movie.

I'm glad I visited the puppet palace, but there are nothing special about it. It's not even old compare the forbidden city etc. and it cost almost as much as the forbidden city in Beijing, and it's more expensive then the summer palace in Beijing. A must see, but don't hold your breath....if you watch the movie.....the last emperor then... More

Really interesting to see something I have learned about, and taught about for years... from a different perspective. The interactive guide was good, as I do not speak Chinese... though, it did require standing still and listening carefully. Some areas were run down, and some were too busy, but really interesting nonetheless.

Changchun doesn't have a lot of attractions but this is the best. It's kind of difficult to get here by yourself (I tried the bus -nº 247 in case it could be useful to someone- and I had to cross a huge a crowdy street market). Even though there are some signs in English most of it is in Chinese... More
