Went here as we were in Tianjin with an organised tour. Been from Europe most people had seen Gaudi's orginal in Barcelona. This is not as impressive but is still worth a look if your in the local area.

We were walking in this neighborhood and did a detour to see the funky China House. We followed the Lonely Planet's advice and didn't pay to enter since the writer said it wasn't worth the 60 yuan ticket price. Outside it's a mass of joyfully tacky pottery embedded in cement walls.

This place looks like a big house with lots of broken porcelain pieces stuck on it. I wouldn't go there again as it has not really much story behind it.

I have never seen a house such as this one! So , Porcelain adorns the walls, bannisters, front of the house, etc. It has 4 floors, and there is a central stairwell you can look down and it is a pretty sight. All along the exterior, along the wrap-around balcony are pots of crystal of varied hues. The only unfortunate... More

I will say this is a place that is neat to walk to while in Tianjin. This really is one of the top ten places to see while in Tianjin not only because of the house but because of the neighbourhood full of restaurants and local shops. For a small fee you can tour the house that has good views... More

This house is utterly absurd and a sight to behold – but there's no need to pay RMB 50 to go inside. There are some dusty old rooms with 'antique' furnture and little else. And don't expect any info on the 'why' or the 'how' of this place. However, I can safely that this is the best porcelain covered European... More

A four-storey house with bits of porcelain stuck into every crevice, including - I believe - the longest porcelain 'dragon' in the world. Wow! It would have been a complete waste of half an hour of my life were it not for the fact that the house also contains a random collection of wardrobes, cupboards, sideboards, etc dating back more...

I can't believe i entered that place on my own. one of the most horrific places to visit. everything is dusted, run-down and just ruined. looks like they are taking money, but doing nothing in order to keep this place clean or at least in a safe condition.

This is quite a quirky little attraction in Tianjin. Not really worth seeking out but good to have a look of you stumble upon it. The whole house is made of pieces of porcelain so you can take some okay photos here.
