Some of the displays were really cool, however it was really repetivite. I bet there are over 500 bowls on display. The kids were bored which makes it hard to enjoy. Definitely not kid friendly.

If you are interested in archeology, you will like this museum. If you are interested in Chinese art, I suggest you restrict yourself to the top floor. It contains the beginnings of a respectable pottery and porcelain collection and a jade collection. The rest you can do on fast forward.

Henan museum is recognized as one of the best provincial museums in china. It deserves it! Henan itself is the cradle of chinese history and the museum has a good collection of relics. a must-see!!

This was a very interesting and pleasant museum. For those that truly enjoy history, you can see and learn a lot from the English translations. The exhibit rooms are set up really well and when I went it wasn't too crowded. I really loved learning about the Tang dynasty and porcelin. I spent about an hour here, could have easily... More

A highlight for me was the concert played with ancient Chinese instruments. There were many objects excavated from tombs. There were some Stone Age objects as well. Zhengzhou is in the cradle if Chinese civilization and this museum helps you get a feel for that.

I enjoyed this museum because it wasn't overwhelming. It was a good size to get through in a couple of hours although one could wander for many hours. There were videos in Chinese but the exhibits had English translations. This gave me a good idea of what life was like in Henan centuries ago.

The importance of Henan Province in Chinese history is not so well known. This museum will give you an idea. It can be hard to conceive of the enormity of it all. This museum is large, but not overwhelming and looks very cool on the outside.

Drop a visit while you are at Zheng Zhou. It is an interesting museum with many antique from China's ancient period. You can imagine yourself living in the past just by looking at their collection. I particularly like their ancient mirror collection made from bronze. Although if you are a foreigner like me, you probably don't understand the significance of... More

Fabulous museum, very big, stretches over 4 floors. There is an entrance fee and a gift shop and a very impressive entrance hall. The museum explores the history of the area and has some fabulous examples of archeological finds from the area dating back centuries. The objects are beautifully displayed, and they give guided tours in English. You really must... More
