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The other reviews seem to be outdated.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

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
