This is quite a quirky little attraction in Tianjin. Not really worth seeking out but good to have a look of you stumble upon it. The whole house is made of pieces of porcelain so you can take some okay photos here.

The house is actually not made of Porcelain as the name indicates but is actually stick to the house and the only thing to see is on the outside of the house and nothing much inside the house

the exterior is composed of broken porcelain from different periods of chinese dynasties. according to the guide, lots and lots of ming dynasty porcelain was used to cover the surfaces. inside there is a plethora of furniture and other household items. all the pieces have a function and a particular style. at the exit you can buy some items as...

It is a must to see if you visit Tianjin. Architect is very unique. Great art work. All is made from porcelain. Entrance fee is 50 RMB and it really worth it.

Interesting, but a bit of a tourist trap. Way too crowded. No explanations to anything. Piles of old furniture everywhere, not sure the purpose of it... Needs some maintenance, as it was unkept and dirty.

I really don't get why some reviews are so negative about the Porcelain House. To me you travel to see things you would never see elsewhere--and the Porcelain House is that!! It is crowded but it is totally fascinating to see a huge house completely covered in porcelain. To my family it was really fun and so different--not another temple... More

The Porcelain House was one of my must see in Tianjin and I was not disappointed. It is not beautiful, I may say it is ugly, but breathtaking at the same time. Be aware that it is a crowded place and as it is small it is sometimes quite uncomfortable. There are no information panels, so if you want to... More

This building was decorated to simulate Gaudi's style of architecture. It was worth a visit but get an English speaking guide to explain the process and features.
