This is called a museum cluster, based in and around the town of An'ren. Way too much to do properly in just one day, especially with the amazing food on offer ! The museums cover modern history really from the War with Japan, to the recent earthquake. Museum of the cinema to the numismatist museum. Couple this with Liu's manor house and the shopping streets of An'ren you have the makings of a great few days!

A lot to see

As I was part of a group on a business trip, I didn't know what to expect as we toured the museum. As it turned out, it was a cluster of museums with exhibits ranging from WWII, the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, and even an exhibition displaying the tiny shoes that women bound their feet with. Each museum was interesting and well done. The museums are founded by a private collector, Mr. Jianchuan Fan. He said that he has collected over eight million artifacts, some of which are considered Class One National Treasures.

Such a Gem

The exhibitions in the public squares are free of charge, others will cost a nominal fee. Good for those interested in modern history in China. Didn't bother with the chargeable exhibitions since we arrived there rather late and was nearing their closing time.

Hidden treasure

This collection of modern museums tells the story of the Anti-Japanese War, with one building (Hall of the Heroes of the Flying Tigers) telling the story in much the same way one could expect a Western museum to do, which was interesting. There are also buildings with exhibitions about the Cultural Revolution, and the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. A fascinating day's exploration, well worth the detour from Chengdu. There are many places to eat on the museum site, and a "golf cart" type shuttle bus if you want to take a break from walking. The entrance ticket was Y80 and bus ticket Y10 (in Feb 2013).

Excellent Museum
Dec 2012 • Family
This is the said to be the largest private museum in China, and is mostly dedicated to the Second Japanese Chinese War. We call it World War II. The museum is spread out over a large number of acres and is comprised of around 15 buildings. The museum is excellent with pictures and artifacts from this time period. I went specifically to view the Flyng Tiger's Building. It is excellently done and did not disappoint me or my family. One other building is dedicated to the victims of the 2008 Earthquake. Thousands died, including many thousands of children. Looking through this building was very emotional, seeing all the damage and destruction caused by the quake. Also the pictures of injured children and adults was very moving. Excellent day trip from Chengdu.
