Visit to this Museum was nice since it was something different from our weekly hangout. The place is quite large and well maintained and the exhibit of the king etc. were quite interesting to see. Overall quite a decent outing.

A great little museum with lots to see. Not much English in the temporary exhibits, but the permanent exhibit has signs in Chinese and English. Well worth a visit and free if you are over 65. 60-65 is half price.

Great historical place to visit. Not very big, but trees and architecture are wonderful. There're a lot of interesting stuff in the museums, but no English description. On the weekends there maybe crowds of people (like everywhere in China)

I went there by subway and tried to learn some history and cultural at Han Dynasty. The museum is not so big, but easy to know the living of that time, since we can enter and visit the tomb, and better follow some interpreter, who...More

This is a display of the contents of the tomb of an ancient king. The objects in and of themselves are not all that interesting, but in their entirety create a portrait of a society obsessed with death in which no sacrifice was too great...More

Visited the Mausoleum today and was fascinated in the way the tomb of the second Nanyue King Zhao Mo’s tomb was discovered, excavated and created into a museum. The excavation place is well maintained but be careful you don’t bump your head especially if you...More
