It is a short walking distance from the hubu valley walking street. The residence provides glimpses into the living of Chairman Mao when he stayed in Wuhan. A must see for all history lovers.

I wouldn't call this place a must visit because it's just like an older 10 baker st in london residence...nothing too special because there are much more interesting things to see. However, if you're a big fan of Mao, then you need to go there and check it out. His place was quite messy but it's better now.

There is not a lot to see in this small former residence of Mao Zedong, that appears to be in a neighborhood (rather than a park) so it is not a main attraction. It is within walking distance of the Wuchang Uprising Memorial. If you are close and like seeing historical places I recommend taking a few minutes to walk through the residence, but I would not make a special trip to see it.

This is well worth a visit for the history and the thought of the huge and luxurious estate that Mao was enjoying at a tumultuous time in China's history. You can even see his luxury car. A wander around extensive gardens is a nice get away from busy Wuhan.

Wuhan is home to the famous Chairman Mao. The residence is situated amidst residential buildings n took us quite sometime to find. From Hubu Alley, we followed the sign n walked for nearly 1/2hr as the signs do not specify the distance to the site. After walking into the alley beside a garden, we managed to find this place, which is more popular among the China mainlanders. The residence is well preserved and showcased basic household items. There's also an area with photos n description depicting the earlier years of chairman Mao. All in all, this is an interesting n historical walkabout.
