This is a very important place in Chinese history. Great collection of books collected over the years. Priceless items. You can learn a lot when you visit this place. I recommend it. RomanP

I really enjoyed walking around the gardens and old courtyard style houses. It was quiet and peaceful. Had some interesting stuff to look at as well.
