To get something out of your visit, you will need to know something about the warlord era or read up on it beforehand. If you do, you will find this fascinating, including the room in which Zhang Zuolin bled to death after being blown up by the Japanese.

If you do not know Chinese history during the WWII period, taking a few pictures of the big house is probably the thing you will most appreciate. But if you are a Chinese history buff, particularly if you like the period of the Chinese civil war between the Nationalist and the Communist, you would like going through this historical residence...

I enjoyed learning about Zhang Xueliang. There is a traditional house and "European" looking house (which really reminds me of the Haunted House at Disneyland). With the ticket this attraction you also get admission to the Finance Museum around the corner.

I had no idea who Zhang Zuolin or Zhang Xueliang were prior to visiting their home, but a family friend took us around and explained the stories behind all the rooms and pieces from the home, which really enhanced the experience. I highly recommend visiting if you have an interest in Chinese history from the Sino-Japanese Wars, Kuomintang and Communist... More

It was just an old house, with a few mementos of the late general. A large house, but, certain areas were sealed off, due to repairs. If you have time, ok, if not, do not bother.

The residence is comprised of traditional Chinese style courtyard and western style buildings. There are separate admissions to other buildings (Mrs. Zhang’s residence and the Financial Museum) for which one can buy combo ticket for. When I was there, there was special exhibit from another museum on horses. These were very ancient historical artifacts ( more than thousand years old)... More

cuz' i wasn't sure what other hidden charges would incurred base on my previous bad experience at the Beiling Park. If memory serves, at least 50+RMB if you want to see all the exhibits. I only snapped a pic from the entrance. Besides, wasn't really in the mood to fight to get in with a bunch of uncivilized tourists who... More
