Still Closed - Construction
Jul 2017 • Solo
No real review, just wanted to let people know it is still closed and looks like it has a long way to go still. There was a painting exhibition in a bldg inside the compound that was worth a look but the museum is definitely not open. When I asked (in Chinese) the expected opening date the guard laughed and said something like "who knows".

Closed for construction

Most of the reviews listed here are actually for the Gansu Provincial Museum, NOT the Lanzhou Museum. The Lanzhou Museum is closed for construction.

What I can see of the buildings from the outside looks nice, so hopefully it will reopen before I leave Lanzhou.

The Gansu museum is worth visiting.

the early man exhibit and religious items
Jul 2013 • Solo
This museum has an extensive exhibit of prehistoric man for the lanzhou area. i was rather struck by the similarity of the pottery on display here and what I've seen in native indian exhibits in the USA. Also, there is an extensive dinosaur exhibit here. Another striking thing I noticed in this museum was the large number of bills thrown to religious artifacts

Very interesting

This very new museum is very attractive .
The historical exhibition is very rich . It contains a lot of items found in various tombs in Gansu Province . The most important is the wonderful "Flying horse" , a little bronze statue representing a galloping horse with a swallow under its hoof .
There is also a paleological section with some dinosaurs skeletons . The most remarkable is the "Mamenkisaurus" , a very huge sauropod of 100 million years ago .

We run out of time, so allow a half day. We visited before we started the silk road so it was an excellent introduction. One of the best we have visited in china

Lanzhou Museum an interesting little Museum in Lanzhou
Oct 2012 • Solo
Yesterday afternoon while on holiday in Lanzhou I decided to visit
the Lanzhou Museum as I'd been told about it by a Chinese acquaintance.
Access to the museum is easy from the railway station by taking the number
one bus to 240 Qingyang Road (the Museum's location),or by taxi.for a modest 30CNY
tourist price cab fare.If you're travelling by bus,make sure the driver understands you want to go to the Qingyang Road Museum otherwise you may end up at the Gansu Provincial Museum by mistake, which is on the same bus route.
Entry to the museum is by free ticket,and the museum itself consists of three
showrooms.In the first showroom there are some amazing old photos reflecting
aspects of life in early twentieth century Lanzhou,and some really old interesting
artefacts including cooking pots,utensils,figurines etc
Over in the other showrooms which are essentially art galleries there are some really nice
traditional style Chinese paintings on display.I really enjoyed going to this Museum in Lanzhou.The only downside is that it is a very small museum,and there isn't much information about the exhibits in English next to the displays.However in saying that, the museum is still very interesting and well worth a visit.Especially if someone hasn't much time to go to a big Museum such as the Gansu Provincial Museum.
