“Avoid...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2014

This is actually an empty building. All the exhibits are all gone, maybe moved to another new building. Wonder why it is still open to public. Perhaps a good place for shelter from the sweltering Summer heat and good toilet break...

“Where have all the exhibits gone?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

If you are visiting Wugong temple then worth popping in as it is free and next door, we went out the back door of the temple to save walking back round. Nothing in English and no guides. Looks like exhibitions are temporary. There was a calligraphy, art and ceramic hall,each and a 1939-45 hall.
Nothing about the history of the island or the different people of the island.

“Free entrance to Haikou Museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

Known as Provincial Museum, the taxi ride from Haikou cost only around RM15. It is free entry but we have to collect a ticket.

There were at least seven halls with exhibits but it looks like the big building complex is underused and one hall was used as a recruitment centre!

There is a short clip of the sun, sea and sports at the theatre. It plays over and over again.
