Museum at 3000 year old Western Zhou city site
May 2014 • Friends
One of the primary reasons we came to Beijing this time was to visit the Liulihe site museum. Even though it's supposed to be in Beijing, it took us 1.5 hours by car to reach the museum. The trip was well-worth it!

The day we visited, we were the only people there. Chinese-speaking guides are eager and willing to show visitors around the one-floor museum that is built on the site of the walled capital of the Yan State. The explanations of the objects on display and the history of the site are in excellent English. There is a very small book store with inexpensive books detailing the site's discovery, excavations and artifacts.

A chariot, complete with driver, a number of exquisite red and black lacquer pieces inlaid with shell, bronze wares, and ceramics are the main attractions. Outside the museum, to the right are remains of the rammed earth city walls but they are now only about 2 m. high, if that.

We were glad to have made the trip to learn more about the early history of the Western Zhou period, and highly recommend this museum to people who are interested in the early history of China.
