The entrance fee is free, but foreigners should bring a passport! There are two museums on that site, and those two have little different art collections. I was so impressed with the ancient time's carvings on jades and woods. One little concern is they don't...More

Popular site, the museum was set in an large attractive garden setting. We had to queue in the late summer sun for 10-15 minutes to get inside the museum. Interesting collection of regional artefacts, especially a couple of large, very ancient-looking stone writing tablets. Liked...More

Visited back in Sep 2011, nice museum features multiple cross-cultural themes from Chinese to western. When the Russian's occupied the place, it wasn't pretty until the collapse of the Czarist regime.

My son and I visited the Lushun Museum on a day trip from Dalian. The entrance was free and we were mainly interested in the mummy exhibit, but were pleasantly surprised by the variety of the exhibits. The Lushun Museum is a short walk from...More

This is such an interesting museum, and it definitely has some great artifacts of old China. This museum is definitely worth a visit. It's not a very big museum, but it has some really interesting sections. All the items have English and Chinese descriptions. Highlights:...More

An excellent museum in two 1915-style buildings constructed by the Japanese during their occupation of Manchuria. One building houses a brilliantly displayed range of Chinese and other Asian ceramics and the famous mummies from Central Asia collected by the brilliant Otani Kozui. Two of the...More
