I enjoyed the visit, but there were not enough explanations and descriptions in English (or, I think, in Chinese either) to give perspective on the background of items.

I would do this museum if you have nothing else to do. If you're only there for 3 days, I would pass. However, if you're there for a week, I would recommend because it is interesting but this is not the musee du Louvres...

We paid 50 RMB for a tour guide and man it was worth it. The Jinsha site is filled with thousands of year old relics and attracts. The site is a reminder of how old Chinas history is.

No idea what I was looking at, and it seems they spent money on the facility, but if you ask me to repeat and explain what's there, I couldn't. The park was nice though

A huge museum well worth the visit, set in 3 separate buildings is the display of Ghengdu history with lovely walks through the gardens between buildings.

A beautifully laid out site, set in nice green gardens, including a deer park. The two buildings look new. One with the excavation area, partly sealed with glass so you walk over it and get a sense of the digs; the other with the artefacts...More

We decided to go to the museum on recommendations of a friend from Chengdu. I really didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. It was well preserved and the artifacts unearthed were really incredible- including a gold mask. There is the site and...More
