Quite nice to break from normal China tourist stuff.
Loved the history.
So sad the the head was stolen after the war and occupation by Japan.
The story is magnificent and exhibits are well done.
Easy to get around.
The bus trip took nearly 2 hours from Beijing, primarily because it stops at every single bus stop along the way. I wished that the Museum carries more real artifacts, rather than replicas. Also, wanting are English Language translations. Museum is separate from the Cave.
