“its terrific”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Very interesting! It's a steep price per person for 80 RB per head. It could use some reviews on the price but still and excellent viewing.

“A house full of melancholy”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

An interesting place to visit. I have seen the 'Last Emperor' movie quite some time ago and forgot about the story. It is interesting to see the place where the puppet emperor was installed by the japanese imperial forces, but the great thing about visiting here is that it makes the extreme unhappiness of the emperor, his wife and his concubines come to life.

“Depressing”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

Built by the Japanese to house the Emperor Pu Yi, it resembles more of a military barracks from the 1940's. Although some of the gardens around the main house are beautifully kept, it still feels institutional and just made me feel uncomfortable. The main house with the waxwork figures were quite well done. I did like the trek down into the bomb shelter where the temperature was noticeably cooler than the heat on ground level. It is worth seeing but it is not something special except in terms of historical significance to China and the days of Manchuria.

“Could be so much better”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

Worth visiting but like all of Changchun attractions not ready for tourist market. We caught the light rail but then had to walk around to the other side, about 2kms to get in with my elderly parents. Once inside very nice but needs to be preserved more, an interesting time in Chinese history when the Japanese ruled Manchuria and used the last Emperor as the ruler.
They killed a lot of people although Changchun city is set up well because of the Japanese.
As they get around to making it an attraction will get better.
