Great Museum
Oct 2019
This is a modern museum and huge. I spent more than an hour at this Exhibition Hall of Shenzhen before the Reform and Opening Up. It is all delightful as well as absorbing experience from this museum.

Great place to learn about Shenzhen
Oct 2019 • Solo
While on a business trip, I found myself with an afternoon free. I love to learn about the places I visit, but rarely have the chance. This was a great museum. It provides history, folklore, insights into local traditions and festivities. There are also adding an animal exhibit.
The gift shop was extremely reasonably priced and I bought a few souvenirs to take back.
It is an easy walk (less than 1 mile) from the central business district.
I would highly recommend.

Good Place to find Shenzhen's Historical Background
Oct 2019
This Museum is easy to access from the Civic Center metro stop, and is just across the road. All admission to the museum is free. Shenzhen Museum houses exhibits and artifacts, and does broadcast some general interest movies about China and China's Shenzhen district.

Love the information on local history

I love learning about ancient China. Much can be learned at its museums, and this is a good one for local Shenzhen and Guangdong Province history and artifacts. The fossils and dinosaurs bones section take us back millions of years. Quite amazing.

WORTH VISITING
Mar 2019 • Friends
Free entrance and covers ancient history of the Shenzhen area over the centuries. Displays show significant moments for the people, their struggles and eventual return of Hong Kong to China in 1998. Start on the ground floor and work your way to the top, the museum flows that way which allows everything to be seen in time sequence. The first floor has traveling exhibits from other Chinese museums. The displays were well presented with plenty of full sized historical tableaux which made it very fascinating and photogenic. Photography (without flash) is permitted in most areas. I would recommend this place to anyone who goes to Shen Zhen

Well worth a visit when you are in Shenzhen Centre

This is a typical city museum, with interesting displays on the history of the area (apparently already settled for many thousands of years) and tidbits of the economic/financial history, which was especially vigorous during the last twenty years.

A great place to spend 2 hours

A very decent museum with everything available in English. The exhibitions are very well made and it's easy to follow the history from ancient times to modern life. Much better than I expected, and it was for free!

Magnificent museum exhibits & very informative displays
Dec 2018 • Friends
My favourite collections are those of Ancient Shenzhen and Folk Culture. That said, I like most of the exhibits. This 37,000 square metre museum houses more than 20,000 historical and cultural items on display. This is a great museum to learn about China, its history, and its cultures. You can learn about the development of stone tools and pottery, the Qin and Han dynasties on the now Shenzhen lands, cultures of other countries, various ethnic minorities of China, the development of the Shenzhen market, exhibits of early settlers in their everyday life making foods, eating and working in shops, and much more.

There is no admission fee.
