We came here on a tour and really enjoyed our approach and walk around the grounds. Part of the museum appears to be floating on the water. The 2000 year old mummy is notable. It is well displayed due to its burial deep in the earth and surrounded by dirt. The corpse has been studied and now on display with... More

I visited this museum whilst on a Yangtze river cruise which moors here. This local museum has a number of interesting exhibits and the unique exhibit is probably the mummy which is described as the best preserved example in China. The bronze, Jade and porcelain halls are impressive too.

This museum is really good, although it is not as famous as the Emperor Qinshihuang's Mausoleum Site Museum (or known as Terracotta Army) in Xi'an. The treasures dated earlier than those in Emperor Qinshihuang's Mausoleum Site Museum. Because most tourists are attracted to Xi'an, Jingzhou is not crowded with tourists and every thing is much cheaper here. You will see,... More

The most unusual, if somewhat grisly, exhibit is the well-preserved corpse of a local worthy who died more than 2,000 years ago. The body is displayed in one case, the innards in another. Written records unearthed along with the body indicate the man was a high official who died in 167 BC. Because of the depth of the tomb and... More

A pleasant collection of art and daily life objects in ceramic,stone and textiles, but the most amazing part was the "wet" mummy, which they claim is still subtle enough to flex its joints. I've never seen another like it. As expected, tour guides in all of China tend to encourage you to "hurry" through these types of spaces, (but linger... More

It looks like just another museum among the many but it have a few surprises. The usual on display in the main building are the ceramics,pots,bells, weapons, ancient bamboo writing and jade from different era found in the region. Exit to a garden and it will lead visitors to the back building. The back building is sitting on a pond.... More

Bit of a trek here from Yichang on a bus, but well worth it. Lots of interesting pieces - especially the preserved body of a 2 thousand year old man, better than any mummy I've ever seen! Well set out, English audio guide available, 20 rmb. Entry to museum is free. Shop has some good souvenirs nd books but expensive.... More
