What people are saying:

This place was really neat to see. There was so much detail that went into constructing this house. You can stare at the walls and see so many intricate designs. It is a great place to take pictures and marvel and the artist’s work.

Additional Information


This is a peculiar house. It is a French architectural structure made from various ancient porcelains, white marbles, crystals, agates and antique accessories. The walls of the Porcelain House are built from hundreds of ancient porcelain bottles from the Warlord Era and the late Qing Dynasty. On the roof, the dragon made from ancient porcelain pieces creates a circular pattern of the word "China". Behind the dragon is the Bird's Nest, the main stadium of the 2008 Olympic Games, made from porcelain fragments. The whole building has five floors. Floors one to four are open to visitors. There are many precious ancient wooden furniture placed on each floor, and the red walls are covered with porcelain pieces to depict the famous and colorful paintings of ancient and modern China and other countries.
