We had time to spare in Wuhan in transit on an organised tour, so we decided to pass the time in this museum. And what a pleasant surprise! It is a quite magnificent building, based on ancient Chinese architectural style but very modern. The museum is beautifully laid out, and its exhibits are expertly displayed on 3 floors. (there is...

Wasn't sure what to expect but we were treated to a performance by players of the 2000 year old Chime Bells (not the real ones!!) The originals were discovered in a tomb and originally no one knew what they were! There is a model layout of the original tomb showing the location of the bells and other artefacts to give... More

This Museum is great, the current exhibition of Anti Japanese Woodcuts is absolutely captivating. Avoid weekends, try a weekday when crowds are less boisterous.

Great cultural attraction to visit. Lots of local and national exhibits. Go during the week when its not so crowded. Went on a weekend when it was rainy so the crowd was somewhat large.

really well laid out, really informative. It tells the history of the 1911 revolution in a very informative way. Liked it and it was great value... Red House is close by too.

This museum is not to be missed. The musical program uses metallic bells, ceramic chimes and ancient string instruments. It must be seen and heard. We did note have a lot of time here but the ancient tomb and its contents (recently discovered in Wuhan area) must be seemed...fascinating. The metal bell sets are works of art.

If you get a chance to listen to the 'bells and chimes' performance, you must take the time. The museum was also well done with an extensive collection of artifacts. With a local English speaking tour guide, the explanation of the artifacts was much more interesting than walking around on your own reading signs.

This is a fairly new museum actually called Hubei Provincial Museum..it contains the most amazing collection of artifacts from a single tomb dating back to 433 BC. Also in this museum is a perfect set of chime bells that includes the heaviest musical instrument in the world. Truly spectacular & a must see. Well presented , spacious & English translations....

A superb museum, beautifully organized and highly recommended. You can even see the origin of languages from Babylonian times.
