If you are traveling to Changchun you must go to see the palace. If you are traveling to Changchun you are probably already going to see the palace. It was very interesting, especially if you are interested in modern history, but it is not too heavy if you do not have a thorough background knowledge. It cost 80 kuai pp... More

From this destination, you can experience the heart feeling of a poppet emperor that once upon a time stated from the top in the country but fallen to the bottom. Very interesting and meaningful trip if you love historical.

It's a beginning 20th century palace, no relevant thing to underline. Could be a weekend visit opportunities. No more than this.

The Palace is very well preserved. With the detailed introduction by the official guide, who is knowledgeable, polite and soft spoken, the visit was like a walk down the history path for us. It provided a good reminder that "history can be forgiven but shouldn't be forgotten"!

An insight into the history of the last emperor rather than the movie version. Lovely architecture and furniture from mid last century.

A fascinating look at this important part of Chinese history. I just wish the displays had English translations. The audio devices helped with the overall information, but the details of artifacts, photos, etc. were only in Chinese so I missed a lot

I spent a few hours here in the winter, I've heard summer can be a bit smelly with the horse track in the middle, so be warned! Otherwise, the house itself if interesting, walking you through the later life of Pu Yi. As someone who didn't know anything about this history, it was a bit shocking at first. The house... More

The only stuff that puzzled me - what's... More
