Beautiful place. Could have been better if it was seen on a clear day. It was raining when we visited but it was still a good visit. A nice museum on site.

Worth a visit. Entrance fee was RMB10. Metro station is just outside of this place. Nice architecture especially the rooftop.

Very cheap entrance fee, comparing to other tourist attractions, but a lot of tourists inside, of course. The building is beautiful itself, but also exhibitions of traditional art and craft inside the rooms were very interesting. Totally worth a visit.
