“Nice to spend an hour or so here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This place was nice, and I learned some things about Nanjing history from its exhibits. The place was also pretty empty (I went about 10am) and peaceful, which is nice considering it is located fairly central downtown.

I looked at it because I had a few hours to kill, and had always noticed it from the bus. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it if you only have a day or two to spend in Nanjing, or if you don't particularly appreciate Chinese cultural relics (ancient pottery, jewelry, etc).

“Super Cool Antiques”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2010

This place is exactly what you would have in mind. It's a plethora of interesting and exciting buys. You look at a vase and wonder how old it is. You see an abacus and wonder who it belonged to. An antique ornament catches your eye and you wonder how much it's really worth!

There were so many different items, from vases to teapots, to coins, to statues, to art to jewellery boxes. Its like seeing pieces of peoples lives and homes from faded societies. You'll get some really unique finds there that are great AUTHENTIC Chinese items that can be gifts for family or friends; better than corny souvenirs you'll get at the modern markets.

I highly recommend it, even if just for a stroll without intention to buy. It was one of my better parts of my trip.
