The Duan Family Courtyard is an ancient courtyard in the beautiful and whimsical western Sichuan style, built with materials such as wood, tiles, slate, and earthen paint. Because of the lush environment and dense trees, many birds, especially crows, frequent the area; as a result, the courtyard is also affectionately called the “Duan Family Crow Forest." The courtyard also has an exhibition hall for ancient housewares from western Sichuan, which is of great research value.
