A must-see when you visit Old Town. A very large residence with much of its early furnishings, beautiful decoration and clear explanations. Whether the Mu's were "headmen" or "kings" remains to be seen, but they ruled over 10 counties.

Many reviewed pricey and it is. But just a note show your passport and you get 50% off. Locals and foreigners alike. Jade snow mountain, TLG also. We were glad we saved on entrance fees being seniors.

We didn't take a tour which may have enhanced our experience. The buildings here are impressive but I understand they are not original. This was the residence of the Mu family, the local rulers of this area.

At first, I thought the 60 yuan entry fee was a bit stiff, but as a respite from surrounding crowded streets and souvenir shops, it was well worth the fee. The complex, which was rebuilt after the fire and earthquake of 1996, looks more like...More
