Even if most of the objects didn't have a english translation, you could get an audio guide if you left a deposit. I recommend a visit here if you are in Jinan. Also the visit were free of charge.

We had a great time at this museum. We learned a lot about Jinan and China in general. It was worth the visit just to see the jade ceiling. We had an English Tour Guide who did an amazing job.
