The place definitely bet my expectations
Jun 2018 • Family
After being tiered from Long Beach days we went to see this Musemum. I must admit I was positively surprised. The place is well looked after, indeed very good translation of everything in English. The entrance is free. I think they could have commercialized the place a bit by offering audio guides and some souvenirs. Good escape from the sea. Please be aware the place is really away from the Dapeng City and it is very hard to get DiDi for a back trip. So we bought some locally grown fruits near the parking and took the bus back to the city for 2 CNY per ticket. Great experience!

Very bad staff, worst I have ever seen
Feb 2018 • Friends
I will this short and sweet:

- We arrived at the geopark and asked for questions about where to girl. The staff got a booklet and read out a script.

- We wanted to see the 3D at 3pm and we waited over 20 minutes. We asked one of the staff where the person in charge was, we were told he could be having his lunch still.

What kind of customer service is this?! In UK people would be complaining to management.

The staff seemed to lacked any basic customer service skills. You build a great geopark but the most important aspect of it all are the staff; and if they don’t care about visitors well being then they will not return and make negative comments in social media like Tripadvisor to deter them from visiting.

Disaster! Absolutely unprofessional !

We decided to spend a day in this geopark. The entrance of this park is free. Inside the park there is a museum. Unfortunately the museum is not well run.

Upon entry, there is no one to greet you or help you. There is no walks in this park but just a museum.

We wanted to go to the 3D science theatre. We started quening 10mins before the show suggested start time. By 215pm, there is still no opening of the theatre. When people asked about it, none of the staff appears to care or bother to go downstairs to find out what happened.

I will give it a miss for what it is.

Engaging, Well-Designed, Displays, Highly Relevant Material
Apr 2016 • Friends
Dapeng Peninsula Geopark is one of the best geological museums I have visited (the Royal Tyrrell in Alberta, Canada being perhaps the best). Its well-designed, engaging displays cover a comprehensive range of subjects from the origin of the universe, the solar system and the planet, through planetary evolution to such relevant subjects as aesthetically and commercially useful minerals. The museum also presents topics of great contemporary interest, such as the relationship between an area's geological structure and building codes and tsunami risks and mitigants.

Children are engaged by the displays in a way that many museums have not achieved.

The translations of Chinese exhibit descriptions into English are almost flawless, far better than normal.

The museum is set in a very picturesque location, with a hiking trail (step staircase, really) to the top of the mountain under which the museum nestles. Food is available from a small restaurant near the entrance to a car park just downhill from the museum entrance, alongside the main access road.

Allow about an hour or perhaps a bit longer to get to the museum from the center of Shenzhen.

Was here with the students to help them extend their studies of the earth's formation. The museum is filled with wonderful displays many in Chinese with English translations. Lots of rocks, minerals and gems on display. The effects of weathering and erosion are also attractions that provided the students with real evidence of the forces of nature.
