At this time it cost 50¥ per adult. We only walked around the outside. You can not see much without going in. However, if you would like to see some older style Chinese buildings for free there are two pretty cool temples up the mountain....More

This 1000 year old academy is a must if you happen to be in Changsha. Lovely old buildings, something you dont see much of this city. Nice walking around in the garden. The museum itself was around 100 RMB and worth the money.

I did not see anything offering classes, this seemed to be more of a museum than a school now. But maybe the hunan university offers classes?
