And it's free! Henan has quite a few ancient capitals (4 out of 7?), so lots of real archelogical jewels to see.

This was a very good museum. The Chinese are very proud of their heritage. We had an English speaking guide who was very informative.

Highly recommended. It gives you a good impression of some of the older instruments. It takes about 30 min and they seem to run it several times a day. There is an extra ticket you buy at the entrance to the theater for 10 RMB

We had a superb English-speaking guide, Ms. Wang, during our intensive tour of this museum. She was extremely knowlagable about, not only the exhibits, but also the development of bronze and porcelain.

the exhibit on ancien china is very well presented. It permits yu to understand precisely the chinese history, through the changes in housing, sculptures and artifacts. One of the best Shan and Zhou bronzes I have ever seen

Normally I would pass through a museum quite quickly not wanting to miss what is happening outside - this museum was an exception. Excellent displays and some extremely interesting exhibits. Way superior to Shanghai Museum. The mummified remains (from Xinjiang??) were amazing. Great porcelain collection too.

I am seldom a good museum visitor but the visit to Zhengzhou Museum was really worthwhile and a must for all visitors. It showcases the early cilivilisation of China from the Xia Kingdom and many interesting artefacts and treasures. A museum guide or someone conversant in the history of places in Henan and the artefacts and treasures would provide a... More
