A classical Chinese museum, which is a big hallway, with some exhibitions. It has plenty of souvenir stores, and just 10 Yuan for the tickets. Easily accesible by Metro.

In big chinese cities nowadays its absolutely not easy to find a lot of ancient architecture. I am a big fan of old buildings and interiors and interested in history. That's why I absolutely loved Chen Clan House. If you have the same interests it will be interesting to visit for you. It will not take a lot of time,... More

Large area - as you move from 'one hall' to another hall, with various exhibits. You can buy some souvenirs to bring home, get to see some ivory and bone crafts (of which you cannot take out of China. Great place to understand the history of the people in Guangzhou in the early years.

We could not find the area to hire self guided tour which would have made our experience so much more interesting. Also there was no one... More

I wanted to see some Chinese culture and this temple/museum was worth to see it! They repainted some of the figures on the roof, but this was not a big deal, you were still able to walk around.

You could just breeze through this "standard" series of rooms and courtyards, but taking your time -- doing the audio guide or more -- will reward you with a wealth of symbols, images, and stories, a sort of primer in Chinese culture. On top of that, the brick carving, porcelain, etched glass, wood carving, and ivory on display here are... More

We stopped by here at the the end of a long trip to China. This place is full of history which at one time was an academic temple but now houses a folk art museum. Most of the area is hands on where you can access by walking through the grounds. There are great hallways, courtyards, and gardens all over... More

Heard stories about the Chen Clan before we even visited Guangzhou. Entrance fee is 10RMB per adult. Inside is a historical building filled with amazing chinese relic and stories about people in the chinese history.
