“History of Opium War”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Free entry, just show the person at the counter to redeem the tickets. I like the fact that it's free entry, it encourages people to know more about history. the museum is very interesting. It's quite difficult to get a taxi to leave the place, must make sure you have your ride back to hotel or to other places if you're in the rush.

“Experience a piece of often forgotten China history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

I was visiting southern China(Guandong Province) and looking for a historic spot to explore. i found that in Dongguan this historic place exists.on the property are the pits that Lin Zexu destroyed the British opium. The museum is well maintained. great exhibits and artifacts are displayed. Signs are in English- so no language barrier. a great statue outside of Lin Zexu. also on the grounds is an old temple and the Humen town museum.the museum was free . Being a history buff-I really enjoyed the place. the average tourist might find a little slow. Just to see the original opium pits was exciting for a history nerd like myself
