Definitely worth a visit if you're a museum lover. The museum isn't huge but there is plenty to see. Most displays have the titles in English and Chinese, however the descriptions are in Chinese. Entry was free and I didn't need to make a reservation. I found the museum well looked after and clean. There are a lot of interesting... More

I went on during the busy National Day holiday to find this place closed. My Chinese isn't too great so I couldn't figure out why. Maybe it will reopen again soon?

Free and exceedingly well located, It is really fine although some of the atractions seem a bit dusty and unattended, and the lack of english info makes things a bit hard for non-chinese readers. Good choice for kids as well as adults. Choose a sunny day and enjoy Dalian beach view, and the fine houses around it.

However the building looks great from the outside, and the scenery around the building is nice, if you have children you can play kite, maze, or roller skate outside the museum. It is free to enter the... More

(Do not make the mistake of taking the boardwalk adjacent to the museum to walk to Ocean World, as it just services the beach and ends... More
