This museum depicts the artefacts of Nan Yue King of Han Dynasty B.C. and it also entomb the mausoleum of this King at the back of this building. Entrance is for a fee & it is sad not all items displayed have English subtitles. Good to know this tomb is also more than 2000 yrs old similar to Qun Shi... More

Museum is ok if u enjoy history. Nothing fancy or interesting like Qin dynasty museum in Xi'An. But was good break from the shopping.

Strarting from the outside, the building is amazing giving you some nice feelings. The entrance fee was very low and a map of the museum is given when you enter inside. It is split in 10 areas each one with specific things. After some of the rooms, the way leads you to the tomb side, which is amazing. The tomb... More

We enjoyed it a lot, interesting story, and a big bonus of information leaflets in English! It's cool that you can see inside the actual tomb. Plus it's easy to get there from the subway.

Worth to visit. You will need at least 2 hrs for visiting the museum. So don't be late. There are 10 steps for visiting the museum. Follow them step by step.

Well laid out museum and dig in the place the relics were discovered! The front part of the museum is only a taster - keep going out the back to the excavation site and through to the rest of the displayed artifacts. Lots of Jade - including the jade burial suit of the local ruler. Be warned - lots of... More

This museum offers about 1000 artifacts, including the jade full burial suit sewn with red silk, and dozens of jade protective discs for the ruler, who was buried on the site of the museum. After his death, Four of his concubines were sacrificed, along with servants and officials. The best part is on the very top floor, where there is... More

to visit IF you have never seen a jade burial suit or a jade oroborous of which there are many. Whilst there is much to see, do bring a small torch as the museum proper lighting is inadequate. As one exits the museum front (where you entered), turn left and walk ~300 metres to Starbucked for a coffee facsimile.

This is truly a special site and is absolutely worth your time if you're looking to take a look into the history of the area. We went in not expecting to be able to go in the actual tomb. It was very neat and unlike any other experience I've had. If they know what's going on, it may be a... More

No photo taking is allowed in the museum which not only has the normal museum like exhibits but also the actual excavation site. The guide will explain how the bones were discovered and how the site was protected..very interesting.
