We unfortunately didn’t have much time to visit (was part of a combined tour) as we got there 30 minutes before closure (6 PM) but it looked really spectacular inside, with a lot of history. Our entrance fee was included but otherwise is 10 yuan....More

The grounds are stunning, the hall’s architecture magnificent and bronze statue is very prominent. The grounds are well maintained, small cost to enter hall and your about 10 minutes away from the Sun Yat-Sen Monument.

There isn’t a lot to do there but it’s nice to visit if you intend to go to Yuexiu Park too. Entrance is free so pop by if you’re nearby but I wouldn’t take a trip there specially for it.

I went there when there is something going on inside, maybe reconstruction or preparing for some event. But there is no announcement in english so I dont know why it didnt open that day. So i just see the monument from the front gate.

Near completely covered up by scaffolding when I visited in late October. Be sure to check before going. Otherwise would be quite a sight. Especially with Yuexiu Hill behind it.
