Interesting and educational
Nov 2019 • Friends
This museum is set in the grounds of a delightful garden. The grounds include the former residence of Pearl Buck.

All exhibits had English and Chinese, and were quite interesting. There were videos, a library of her books, and a wax lifelike figure of Pearl Buck.

Original home site and great US and Chinese research.

This is a wonderful visit filled with recreations on the original site and great US and Chinese research. CALL IN ADVANCE TO SET UP A VISIT TIME. Make sure they are there when you want to come. It is primarily a school education museum as far as I can tell.

Walk through a construction site...
Jun 2016 • Friends
在工地上面, 要登上很高的楼梯. 如果锁门,要喊叫才能工作人员给你开门. This place is open. Since it has very few visitors, you may not even need to heed the visiting hours as the staff person will open/close for lunch when they feel like it. But there should be a lady staff member and may open the gate / door if she is on duty (and you shout loud enough from the gate). not that far from the railway station. 润州山路6号A幢. Can walk from nearest bus stop. Must go into the construction area, left opposite the school and then up a long staircase.

Just visited the museum, and a sign posted on the gate said closed as of December 2015. It is now February 9, and nothing indicated when it will reopen again. :(

Almost Impossible to Find
Nov 2013 • Solo
Glad to see some travelers, including Chinese have actually found this museum and house in 2013. It desperately needs encouraging signage on the way to it, especially since the neighborhood is now being torn apart by massive demolition and apparent urban renewal, the street address numbering seems capricious at best, and few local people know or can explain consistently where this is. Four years ago I found it but it was closed. This time, in a driving rain,with a frustrated cabbie, I gave up. Also consider the cottage on Lushan, a much prettier pace, where Pearl Buck actually wrote "The Good Earth." Tucson folks: Insist on better signage.

Watch the opening hours

I tried to visit this museum, unfortunately, I was not able to get in because I arrived at their lunch break, which is surprisingly long, from 11:30am thru 2:30pm, also note that they close on Monday.

Take note that this museum requires you to have about 100m's walk up the slope from where the taxi drop you off. After you finished the visit, you can walk down the slope again, but it's not likely that you will be able to get a taxi from there, it's just another 200m's walk to the main road.

A Jewel
Oct 2011 • Solo
This was another jewel -- no pun intended -- in Zhenjiang. If you are not into hitting touristy places, then this is one of them. No tacky souvenir stands. No hawkers other than the businesses that are already established on Run Zhou Shan Rd. Although it is small, it is kept in good condition and most of the exhibits are bilingual. It's also free. One draw back? It's closed on Mondays.
