  • Not very interesting museum. You can not take photos inside, and there are mostly cardboards explaining some historical facts.
  • I watched historical materials more seriously than the scenery of the garden. It was really good to see valuable historical materials. Photography is prohibited in the historical museum. However, there are a lot of group guests of Chinese wherever it goes.
