The five-room Ancestor Shrine House lies on the western side of the mansion. The traditional winding corridor, lawns and flower nursery look graceful and elegant. A portrait of Cheng Dawei is hung on the wall of the Abacus Exhibition Hall. There are more than 1,000 abacuses and 3,000 copies of related materials displayed in the showcases.
