We stumbled on this by accident. It was interesting to walk around. Some more info in other languages would have been nice but an enjoyable 30 minutes or so none the less.

We didn't actually pay to enter this building, just viewed from the outside - it was one of those places that you just gotta see!!!

This place is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. You can see the facade from the street which is really the best part, but seeing it up close gives a nice perspective of the broken vases and cups used. There is more to see on the inside so worth going in.

On the exterior, the house is classed with whole vases and, around doors and windows, with porcelain pieces. The interior has porcelain mosaics on the walls and plenty of old furniture on display. There are almost no vases on the inside. There are... More

It was very interesting. The porcelain used are mostly antiques from various dynasties. The exterior of the porcelain house is lined with porcelain vases, while the... More

The house is a very interesting piece with walls, sculptures, stairs and wall murals made of broken pieces of porcelain. There are intact vases making up door frames and roof tiles. It's worth a visit if you're in the area.

I was looking forward to the visit as I saw it on a tourist tv programme previously and thought it was unusual. The house is within the Five Avenue. It looked okay from a distant. Once you went close to it, it was just a house plastered with cheap vases, plates, pots and broken porcelain and terracotta pieces. Don't bother!
