Collection of the artifacts and the explanation of ancient China history was great. The special exhibit was the mummified corps. You should check it out !

I can't believe anyone wrote that this museum was only worth coming to for the mummy. Yes, the mummy is incredible, but there are 2000 year old millet cakes, 2000 year old everyday personal artifacts and clothing that belonged to this woman that are in almost perfect condition! It's almost like you get a real window into the past. This... More

this one was excellent. Worth the time to queue up and see just what came out of those tombs, and in such condition after all those centuries.

We were not given any warning that this musuem is closed. If we had known, we would have planned other things. Waste 1.5 days.

The museum has a fruitful collection of historical items in various kinds, eg. pottery, ceramics, bronze, stones, textiles, calligraphy; many of them were uncovered from the big Han Dynasty tomb, including the well preserved mummy lady Dai. The admission fee is waived at the moment; not sure how long will this offer last.

Excellent exhibits of bronze, pottery, ceramics, textiles, and other artifacts from Hunan Province, especially the Changsha area. Exhibits cover Shang Dynasty to Ming Dynasty and include many unusual or unique pieces.

In 20 days in China I have seen only a handful of Americans or westerners for that matter and all in Beijing. In Sanya, China’s Hawaii I observed 9 Russians. In Changsha one American was it. I am comfortable with that but some may not be. This museum is world class, a hidden gem –without my local friend I probably... More

I went here along with a couple of coworkers on a business trip. I really didn't have any expectations because I knew nothing about the museum and I don't frequent them often. I thought the only thing worth looking at was the mummy lady dai. It was pretty cool to see something like that up close. If that is all... More
