with its 3 main areas of concentration: Calligraphy, Jade, and Porcelain. I have to say that the jade collection gave me a much better understanding of jade. The museum was free when we presented our passports, but I'm not sure if it's free always for everyone. We have been told that if the word "museum" is in an attraction's name,... More

I was pretty impressed by the Liaoning Provincial Museum. It has three permanent exhibitions (Jade, Porcelain and Scripture) and when I was there it also had three temporary exhibitions. No lighters or sharp objects are allowed. Water is okay. Opening hours for the Liaoning Provincial Museum are 0900-1700 between April to October (last entry at 1600). Between November to March...

Guys. The museum at this address is closed. It apparently has moved and is at least a 1.5 hour SUBWAY ride from old address. I would update the address but I don't speak Chinese. I will try and upload a photo of the sign I took at the old museum!!

I especially like the carved jade and paintings sections. We also enjoyed the pre-history sections that trace from stone age, bronze age through to recent times. Very well done and informative. There are guides available if required. Really helped my understanding of Liaoning

I don't really understand how they can let it open with this kind of air quality, the smell is so strong that you feel like you're standing in a decoration site itself... The organization of the museum is good, they have five exhibition halls with different themes. Also it's a good place with very limited tourists if you want to... More

Wonderful paintings of northern horsemen and their lives on the steppes of Northern China. Important historical pieces recovered from funeral mounds and a possible missing link in the evolution chain displayed in the Museum.
