I probably don't enjoy history as much as the other commenters, but I felt that the Mufu palace was slightly disappointing. I thought the walks and the architecture outclassed whatever there were inside the buildings.

This is still a must-go to place, but I had different expectations I suppose?

We loved exploring all the nooks and crannies of the buildings, gardens and water features of this Mansion built 500 years ago, destroyed by an earthquake and abandoned during the revolution. It was rebuilt in 1998. The chieftain family of Lijing, Governor Mu received officials and resided at this Mansion.

Large domestic tours with loud speaker systems destroy the peacefulness necessary to appreciate this place (as has become true just about everywhere in China these days), but the groups depart well before closing time, and the views at sunset are worth the admission, as are the bonsai.

There is very little to do in Lijiang, so visiting this place is an okay endeavor, but we spent an hour or so dodging tour groups and wandering in and out of structures that appeared to be about 30 years old, but saw evidence of any living quarters. There was a greeting hall, a library, other such structures -- but no evidence of habitation. I've been to many old mansions in Chinese ancient towns and they have all had, you know, bedrooms, kitchens -- this sort of thing. This place seems to have been constructed, very recently, as a tourist attraction. NOBODY lived here.

Spent a morning here and it was so worth it. It was much more intimate and assessable than our visit to the Forbidden City in Beijing. That might also be down to the fact that we did this on our own rather than with a guide, so could take our own time looking around.
It’s worth climbing the stairs at the back of the gardens for views of the old town rooftops below.

Mufu palace lies on the side of the hill holding Lion Rock. The location is very scenic with much vegetation and stone work. The main entrance is from the ancient city southern center where you can get tickets and guides. We entered in the back while coming down from Lion Rock and skipped the guides and front entrance crowds. This place is really wonderful to visit - so many people agree that you will find large crowds during the normal tourist seasons. As much as I liked it though I would recommend that you see it with a guide as we missed much history without one.

One of the prettiest places there is. They offer tours periodically, which are interesting, though in Mandarin.

One should visit this place if spending a few days in Lijiang to have a good understanding of Lijiang ancient town and Naxi people. Entrance fee is rmb40 and it includes a small keychain souvenir with your photo taken there. Printed photo costs rmb 20 which we took 1. Avoid taking the photo if you do not intend to buy. There's a guide to walk us through the place with narration in Mandarin. Strongly recommend you climb to the peak of the mansion to have a good view of Lijiang old town. The tour and walk will be about 1.5hour

Mu Mansion or Mu Fu is actually a local palace located in the old town for the local chieftain. Go on guided tour ( included in the ticket price 40RMB) to know the history of the palace and its owners. Colourful restoration of the palace made it a great place for photos. Be sure to go to the highest point at the garden to have a bird eye view of the whole of Lijiang old town.

If you are wandering around the old town you will probably venture to this place.
Its very colourful and an interesting story as you walk around, all signs in Chinese and English. We managed more than 2 hours and were lucky to catch a small team making a historic video with a young girl in period costume.
I didnt notice the sign at the entrance when we came in but caught it on the way out, this is not original building as it was damaged and rebuilt. Little bit of a dampener as it all looks so original, still an interesting place to see and worth the 40Y entrance fee.
