The mere fact that the huge, functional, bronze bells and other artifacts in the Wuhan Museum are over 2400 years old and only discovered by accident in the last half century make it worthwhile visit.

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.

The museum is well presented and full of extraordinary exhibits. The building which houses the exhibits is large scale and impressive in itself. The building comfortably absorbs large numbers of people and shows off its contents stylishly. Two hours is too little to see even just the highlights. Plan two or three visits over the period of your stay, it... More
