Museum of the Imperial Palace of Manchu State
The Imperial Palace of the Manchu State was the official residence for China's last emperor Puyi to live in as the Emperor of the Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo. China preserved the ruins of the palace and opened it as the Museum of the Imperial Palace of Manchu State.
It is classified as a Class AAAAA scenic area and regarded as a global education base for reminding people of the negative effect of World War II.
The palace covers 137,000 square meters, containing dozens of buildings of different sizes. These buildings carry architectural tints embraced by modern and ancient Chinese buildings as well as foreign architectures. The architectural style is typical of the colonial period.
