I explain, there are mold on the walls and lots of dust (I'm allergic to dust-mites, acarus, I had the respiratory tract irritated). Apart this, it was perfect, the architecture is fabulous, the garden (renovated) is pretty (little pond, faux-cherry, pretty bridge) and romantic. Many of rooms talk about the history of the politic in China (that can be interesting if you have a guide, or understanding Chinese because it is not translate). The other rooms concerns the history of this place and the daily life. And the district is so amazing, an more elaborate architecture. I came for the end of Chinese new year, there were some activities, like the two-men shows in the mansion (a speciality of Tianjin) So worth-it in Tianjin ! We can visit in less than 2hour, but prepare 1h30 with the bus (the last one is at 7:30pm) and the price is 27yuan (13 for eldery person and student)

The mansion has rooms visitors can enter. Family bedroom, living area, dining room, theater. The garden is being renovated. This was about a 90 minuet bus ride from the cruise terminal.

This mansion once belonged to a well-to-do family in Tianjin. Highlights of this attraction is the Chinese architecture, furnishings and family history. The mansion is large so there is a lot of things to see - family bedrooms, meeting rooms, dining rooms, and a beautiful central garden/pond area. This is a worthwhile place to visit while in Tianjin.

A worthwhile visit for tourists, and those generally interested in pre-revolution chinese history and culture - a touch far from the city, an hour or mores travel. A classic courtyard home, though a bit limited in furnishings and art. English speaking guides are available, and the tour is full of information about the local history and art.

Beautiful furniture, art, gardens, and courtyards give a glimpse of what life used to be like for a wealthy merchant's family. The mansion also featured an exhibit of traditional bridal attire and showed the carriage that brides rode in. It was on the outskirts of Tianjin, so expect a long drive (over 30 minutes), and we spent over an hour viewing the mansion and its various exhibits. Nice gift shop with reasonably priced souvenirs unique to Tianjin.
