September 2019 - seem to be fairly major interior works going on and the place is closed. It was a fairly long subway ride, so disappointing. On a Sunday, there was a very small craft market in the courtyard.

This museum might help you kill an hour. Nothing terribly special here, unless perhaps you read Chinese, in which case you might get a bit more out of it. As the name of the facility suggests, it covers Dalian modern history, mid-19th to mid-20th century....More

This is a good place to go in Dalian. You need 1,5h to visit it, basically the museum has 5 floors, but only have things on 2nd floor. Everything is in Chinese, so you need to rent the Audio Guide, is 30 rmb and 200...More

I have been there a couple of times and always something new and fresh. The entrance is free and although everything is in Chinese but still there is a lot about past and present Dalian.

This museum has so much potential that it was disappointing to find that only one, of four, floors was open. This housed an interesting collection of photos and objects on the history of Dalian, but captions and explanations were only in Chinese. Yet I still...More

If you like museums, you'll like this one. If you speak only English, just remember to pick up a pamphlet before heading upstairs. It'll help you know what each room is about, since all the plaques are in Chinese. Nice collection on the history of...More
