I have been through several musemums in China and displays of pottery in this one are superior. There were several gift shops specialized by type of art.

The city is, rightly, proud of this building, a superb example of modern architecture. While its main notice board had English translations, only about 1/4 of the exhibits had them, so we were not very enlightened.

We had a great experience in the Luoyang museum. I didn't know much about this place beforehand and it was interesting to see all the history and antiques found in this location. Not many signs are in English, so I recommend you hire the audio guide, which provides some good information. The museum has nice pottery, bronze sculptures, Chinese painting... More

The other reviews seem to be outdated. There are English explanations for everything and a good English audioguide for 20 yuan. Taxis easy to get at the corner. Luoyang was a capital for 13 dynasties, starting with the oldest, Xia, and the museum has an extensive collection with some unique objects from its rich history. Nice airconditioned building, few people.... More

We wanted to skip this museum due to lack of time, but in the end went here instead of to the White Horse Temple. The museum is huge and you can easily spend a morning here. We saw only the lower floor. Beautiful pottery, both the standard Chinese dings but also little houses with wells from funeral tombs, a pottery... More

I worked on Luoyang for three months and went to this large new museum several times. I love it. For the general traveler, it is worth spending a few hours to appreciate the amazing objects. Local keep telling you that Henan province has a very long history, and Luoyang City was an ancient capital of China for a very long... More

Great museum but hard to get a taxi from there. You need to walk a kilometre up the road to the main road to hail a taxi from there

We spent a half day in here before catching a bullet train to our next destination. The building seems brand new with sparkling new cabinets and marbellous floors. Plenty of old artifacts in cabinets with a small amount of explanation in English. Whilst there were a few videos in Mandarin only, there was generally no information linking the whole thing... More

During our visit to the museum, we focused on a special exhibit on the Silk Road, and so cannot comment on the entire collection. But what we saw was very impressive, and for the most part well designed and displayed. However, we were disappointed that the English message that was carved into a stone wall at the entrance to the... More

If you're interested in Chinese porcelain, and in Sancai works, especially, this newer museum is the place to go. Large, well-laid out, and informative, plus the English captions are not as spare as in other Chinese museums, altho they could be longer and more detailed. We spent approximately 2-3 hours carefully studying the exhibits. Like every museum, everywhere, no flash... More
