The church is definitely nice to see from the outside. The inside is not as impressive as they turned it into a sort of art exhibition and it is really small. For 4-5$ it will take you less than 1 minute to see the inside of the church. In my opinion not worth going inside of it as it is not much warmer inside and not much to see. But definitely nice to take some pics from outside. Please keep in mind I do reccomended to see the church from outside as it is popular in Harbin, but going inside in my opinion is not necessary nor memorable.
