“Good combination with the museum and park”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

I wasn't planning to visit here, but ended up at the entrance after I visited the Sichuan museum and impulsively decided to go in. I am very glad I did; it is an interesting combination of gardens, history, poetry, and art. It inspired me to want to read more Chinese poetry (albeit in translation). Most exhibits had English signs; some signs were also in Japanese or Korean. The souvenirs for sale seemed of better quality than I had seen elsewhere. A lot of large Chinese tour groups visit the main cottage section; I was there late in the afternoon and was able to mostly avoid them. I was fortunate to be there on a beautiful day; however, umbrellas are available for loan if you get stuck in the rain.

“Dr Fu'cottage”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Spent an afternoon here with a wendy wu trip. Very relaxed atmosphere. Historically very interesting.( if you like that sort of thing) but why go to China if you don't.

“Pleasant refuge in a big city.”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

This site is nicely set out and a pleasant quiet corner in a big bustling city, and worth a visit, to see Chinese culture from years ago.

“Under renovation”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

It was under renovation when I went so some parts are still not completed. The archaeological site was ok, with some artefacts being shown and there was a video which shows how life was in the past. The old cottage of Du Fu displayed the general layout and old furniture.

“Nice big park”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Nice park to wander arround, also some excavations, statues and a little museum. To see all, it takes about 2 hours.
