Visiting this place for 1 hour, follwed by jiminsi temple for 1 hour and finally xuanwu lake for 3-5 hour is a good itinerary because they are located at a distance of about 100 meter each.The Ticket cost 20 RMB.

Not only for children! There are some interesting satellite maps of Nanjing, castes of homoerectus and plenty of fossils. There's a huge amount to learn in a very compact space.

OK - so all the signage is in Chinese (annoying - but we are in China!!) However, there are a number of huge skeletons and lots and lots of fossils and some pretty good drawings. When we were there they were showing a BBC Dinosaur movie on a loop which was a nice breather. Toilets were ok but didn't see any refreshments. It is next door (down the hill) from Jiming temple and a nominal entrance fee (20rmb?) so if you are in the area it is worth stopping by.
