Xiguan is the ancient word for Guangzhou's Liwan district. Guangzhou Liwan Museum is a museum dedicated to Xiguan culture. The museum comprises of two separate exhibitions. The partly-preserved Xiguan Dawu displays traditional Xiguan folk customs whilst the white western-style building next to the Xiguan Dawu displays some ancient and modern handicrafts that are related to the Xiguan culture.

Xiuanguan Dawu, or the Xiguan grand mansions used to be the residences of wealthy businessmen. They are now the typically representative of local traditional dwellings in Guangzhou.

A typical Guanxi Dawu is usually comprised of a porch, courtyards, several living rooms, bedrooms, a study, a dining hall, and a kitchen. The biggest living room, with a high ceiling and richly decorated, is the center of the mansion. Walls were decorated with polished brick, and the windows had colored glass. The house's high walls served well defensively but also and allowed air to circulate even on days of heavy rain.

Visitors can buy tickets at the white house beside the the plague "Liwan Museum" .
