From the doors with the huge pictures on them to the intricate decorations of the roof, this museum is fascinating on a number of levels. Originally built to honour all people with Chen surname, it now also includes various art and other displays of interest.

Take the Metro Line 1 to "Chen Jia Ci"(陈家祠), which is the spelling according to pronunciation in Mandarin of "Chen Clan Ancestral Hall". It is just minutes walk from metro station.
