Compare to other museums this is quite boring to young people. there are a few tombs that telling the past history of place or something. Its not so big to visit all place within 15 minutes.

Beautiful, well-designed, clean bathrooms, and top-grade treasures.

This is a place to come if you like porcelain, history, and archaeology, which I do. The artifacts were beautifully displayed and meaningful. There were much-appreciated English captions on all the artifacts, although I wish some had included deeper explanations: for example, how did the dew-collecting cup work, and how did they figure out what it was?

My children, 11 and 13, were less enthused, since they would rather play with their phones than learn something, but I think it was good for them. They most liked the interactive digital screens, the jewelry and the swords.

I was very excited to see this museum after a positive review in That's Guangzhou but I found it very underwhelming. There is a couple of halls dedicated to ceramics which we just weren't into. Highlights of course are the facade of the building and being able to walk into the tomb.

Nice Modern Museum of 2000 Year-Old Mausoleum
Oct 2019
This is a very nice, modern museum that is located in the central Guangzhou area - a museum with an interesting history. According to Wikipedia, this museum houses a 2,000 year-old tomb of the Nanyue King, Zhao Mo in Guangzhou. This Tomb was discovered by accident in 1983 when a construction crew was getting the area ready to build a new hotel at this site. Five years later (1988), the Museum was opened at this site instead.

The museum houses over 1,000 burial artifacts from the Tomb, and you can actually walk down (underground) to see where the actual original coffin chamber was located - interesting! The museum is somewhat large in size because there are just so many items found at this site including: Jade jewelry, gold and silver vessels, burial suit of King Zhao Mo and many more items of interest.

Overall, I found the museum to be very interesting and worthwhile.

The museum has two parts . 1 st part is on bronze and ceramic . And the second portion is on the artefacts from the tomb of a King. The trip becomes more interesting with narrative given by museum staff in the evening . ( in Chinese ) . It is near the sun yat Sen monument.

Lovely museum and mausoleum ...

An interesting place showcasing the history of the greater region before it became a part of China proper. Museum has many artefacts and is well-presented. The mausoleum on the grounds is simpler, but nonetheless, a good visit paired with the museum.

Great tomb and museum - but also a great guide.
Nov 2019
Wenmay was our guide for a few days in Guangzhou and she was terrific. Odynovo (China Odyssey) organised our visit to China and Wenmay showed us around her home town. She took us to all the usual sights but also showed us things a tourist would usually miss. And we had some great food because of her local knowledge.

A big thank you to Wemay and China Odyssey.

An interesting view of preparation for the afterlife in the Han dynasty- learned a lot and the excavated tomb and artifacts were very interesting. Labels in English were adequate for understanding.
