Good history of The Last Emperor, as told by the People's Republic of China
Jan 2019
They say history is written by the victors, so bear that in mind as you visit this museum. This is a very thorough tale of the life of PuYi, who became 'emperor' of China on three different occasions. It's also a chance for the Party to tell how compassionate it was to 'rehabilitate' PuYi after he was deposed and captured--instead of executing him as a traitor. So it's a mix of history and propaganda. Still, if you want to learn about the last days of the Chinese empire and the Japanese-occupied Manchuria, this is a very good place to start. The signage is very thorough and in both Chinese and English. Interesting displays from throughout PuYi's life as well are exhibited along a chronological path through the building. This was definitely the highlight of my visit to Changchun.

Pu Yi’s Manzhouguo palace, now a museum to remember the fake empire of Manchuria
Aug 2019 • Couples
The museum captures a slice of 1930s Dong-Bei history under the Japanese military occupation. A tour of the palace gives an insight into Pu Yi and his family’s living quarters and into the working apparatus of his government and secretariat. Unfortunately no
English language audio guide was available and there was a lack of explanatory notes in English on the majority of the exhibitions. Some interesting items associated with the Puppet Emperor on display, the standout probably is Pu Yi’s personal car (American made by Park Automobile Co). Palace grounds are worth an exploration - charmingly quaint garden with fountain pool and an underground surprise, an imperial bunker, an air raid shelter constructed for the Manchukuo royal family. I also discovered another curiosity adjoining the Palace perimeter, a show-jumping track for horses.

Nothing special

A good place to spend a day there although nothing special. Don't compare with the Palace in Beijing.

Wonderful part of history!

This is a must see for any visitor to Changchun. I loved visiting after seeing the Last Emperor many years ago. Even if you did not see the movie, the museum does a great job of providing an in depth view. There is a lot of walking involved. There is an app that provides commentary in English.

Read up before you go and some interesting surprises
Jun 2018 • Solo
The Museum of The Imperial Palace of Manchukuo has a poor location. It takes around 1 to 1.5 hours to reach there from the main city in Changchun. The place feels rural and not easy to get cabs from there. It is connected to the Dongjiang War Memorial and Puyi's palace. So 80 RMB is quite worth it. The museum consist of many similar palace rooms with similar artefacts. I will suggest you read the history of Pu Yi before you visit to have a better experience. Reason is because there are few English captions. The Chinese captions are elaborate but difficult to understand without context of Japan's invasion of Manchuria in 1931. Do check out the 2 hidden surprises. The first is the list of shops outside the museum selling Russian accessories and food. You will find nice souvenirs there. the 2nd is an underground bunker located next to the museum. You can go in and it is very cold inside during summer too. In short, this is a must visit site but read up before you go.

As the last emperor of China, it is with great interest to know how he had lived as a puppet emperor. The grandness of Chinese palaces we have all seen, but what about this man - Puyi? Thus is you are as curious about his lifestyle as us, then head down to this place, where museum tour guides will explain to you how every space is used and how Puyi lived there being watched 24/7.

Not bad.

I like museums and history, so this was interesting. If you're not into history, you probably have no idea what the museum is about, so you may want to skip it. I liked the exhibits and displays. I have no complaints

A passage into the history of Manchuria.
Mar 2017 • Family
The ticket price is 80 without student's card and with it is only 30RMB.
You have access to the stables, all of the buildings and the museum of war history.
Alos, you can walk around the Japanese designed garden and go into the WWII bunker.
There is so much history there but, some of the pictures are in Chinese only and some of the plates are all difficult to read as they are too old.
However, they were rebuilding a section of it when we visited this year.

If you are in Changchun, this place is a must.
