I visited Nanjing City Museum on holidays. The museum was crowded but it provided great exhibitions. I think that this museum is a must visit. It's near to the metro station and Nanjing university of agriculture.

Best place to learn for Chinese culture and history of Nanjing city. Better to be with some chinese people or guide to learn about all the monuments

Not to be confused with the Nanjing Museum. This is a different one. Set in Chaotian Palace with many displays of artifacts, from fossils and tools, to bronze, porcelain, jades and silk. There were so much to look at, we spent hours there. A good...More
