An eye catching and unusual - and successful - building set in a small park. The exhibits largely centre on local history (there was also a good one on Xinjiang) but there is plenty of it in Ningbo which has always been an important port...More

Contents are fine but the captions are either in Chinese or poorly translated. However, the building itself is great. Interested architecture with nice views from the roof. It is adjacent to a pretty nice park. Recommended but not worth a big detour or whole day...More

I would recommend it to visit. The building itself is very interesting. To be honest I don’t remember the exponats, but I remember the building. It is in contemporary stile and was designed by famous Chinese architect. So yes, it is worth visiting it.

Absolutely worth a journey. Stunning building, interesting historical exhibits and some stunning Tang celedon #527 bus that runs down Jiefang South Street past Drum Tower takes you to within 10 minutes' walk of the museum. About 40 minutes. 2RMB.
