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.

I had heard about the Porcelain House prior to travelling to Tianjin but I was totally amazed by the amount of porcelain that the owner used to build this unique structure.

This is a weird and surreal experience. This place is swarming with Chinese tourists and there is almost no explanation of the displays in either Chinese or English. It is over-priced and a tourist trap.

This was an unusual building,it was covered totally with broken Chinese China plates and jars. It is situated right in the middle of the busy town of Tianjin.it was very busy ,so was difficult to see inside the house for people .

I cannot see the point of sticking so many broken pieces of porcelain on the wall of a house -- sooooooo ugly. It's not historical either.
