I was there with an English speaking guide called Dream. The trip was booked through China Hilights.
It is a informative place how scholarship in the past worked and a different look on Imperial times in China. My guide was very knowledgeable on the subject.

The architecture is beautifully restored and the information contained within is educational. If you are history or education interests, I highly recommend this site.

Well worth a visit, the buildings have been beautifully restored, an oasis within the city - combine with visit of Confucius temple next door.

Can't imagine there were security guards or police smoking at the ticket-selling place at the main entrance. Smoking may cause fire which may damage this precious heritage. In addition, the doors to every exhibition rooms have been replaced by the ugly and dirty plastic strips and almost no one feel interest to enter in. The calligraphy of every rooms' titles had been written in wrong order(should have been from right to left in the Qing dynasty), showing the destruction by the red guards during the Cultural Revolution.
What shattered us the most is the footprints are noticed on the candidates' tables along the imperial examination road and someone used the maobi to mark the Arabic numbers on the tables top. We can't experience any atmosphere of the royalty supposed to be found in the imperial college!
Eventually we rushed to go out in a great despair. What will be the destiny of a nation who treats her history in such an insulting way?
We still give one star. it is a kind of unique experience of one's country history though it's on the inglorious side.

This site is interesting, as it has displays discussing the important role that this college played in Chinese government for several hundred years.

The displays, while informative, could be better if more thought had been put into how information could be conveyed with more context, rather than just reciting facts. In that respect, this feels a bit like a museum from the 1960s, rather than one from the present century. Nevertheless, this was a worthwhile stop and gives some good background on how portions of the Chinese government functioned over several dynasties.

This place can easily be combined with a stop at the Lama temple, which is only about 500 m east.

We really liked this place

Out was calm, quiet, very unusual.

Really liked the museum display talking of the Imperial College education system dating from 2100BC !! until around 100 years ago.

The site is impressive, well laid out and relatively quiet. The ceramic tiles are amazing along with the entrance area. There is an interesting history museum detailing the imperial examination system which is worth a quick visit.

This place gives a good overview of China’s thoughts on education both past and present. On the day we visited groups of school children donned robes and were addressed by a master teacher on the need to study hard. The museum provides good information on the choice of scholars during an Emperor’s reign. A small entry fee and toilets inside.
