Yes, you can see Ice sculptures in June. It is held indoors at a constant 15 degrees C. For 180 RMB you get an entry ticket and winter jacket and pants. We spent just over an hour inside and really enjoyed our time.

This is what you come to Harbin to see. Beautiful park with many, many fantastic, and sometimes absolutely monumental sculptures. Take your breath away. A short road train takes you from the car park/visitor centre into the park itself then you walk around completely mesmerised...More
