Ancient arts
Jul 2019 • Family
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 control air condition in a museum except in the mummy zone (so, many people stayed in the mummy zone).

A neat little museum
Aug 2019 • Couples
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 the large historic painting in one room. Nearby Russian-era gun emplacements are a well used photo op.

This is not the prison
Oct 2017 • Couples
Reading the reviews is a little confusing. For starters, this is not the prison but the Lushun Museum. It shows Lushun's anthropology and history back to the stone and bronze ages, ceramics, calligraphy, Chinese nature art and religion. One Chinese reviewer said there are English description on exhibits but disappointingly, I found English for directions, major sections but very little English on the detailed exhibits.
The two museum building themselves are beautiful inside and out and the Buddhism section is excellent. Admission is free and it's fairly foreigner friendly. If you are into ceramics or Chinese culture then this museum would be excellent.

World War 2 Prison run by the Japanese, on Chinese soil.

An extremely interesting Chinese heritage site outlining the suffering and conditions of prisoner of war life for Chinese, Korean and Russian inmates.

Great Museum

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.

Disappointed
Sep 2015 • Friends
I went there on Monday but found it closed. It was a terrible waste of time. I don't know why but asked the guard and he told me to visit the next day. Visited the nearby snake park instead, which has an entry fee of 38 RMB per person. It was good and provided some consolation for the frustration I endured!!!

good museum, be sure to visit both buildings
Jul 2015 • Family
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 the Snake Museum and Memorial Tower of Sino-Soviet Friendship.

The architecture of the building is Russian, and the buildings were previously used as officers clubs. The exhibits that were really interesting to us included the bronze sculptures, vases, ancient weapons, budha statues and the mummy. To visit both museums will take 1-2 hours, and the crowds here are small compared to the nearby snake museum.

Fascinating Museum
Jul 2015 • Friends
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:
2000 year old bodies of a man and woman that have been mummified
Buddha history

Pitty not many Chinese and expats in Dalian visit this place.
Sep 2012 • Business
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 six mummies of the Otani Collection are here. Also worth looking at are the jade and cloisone collections.

The other building contains a very good display on the local area and one on the Silk Road - However few of the labels are in good English.
