Great historical site to visit while in guangdong. The place showcased the history of guangdong and showed why the city was named the city of wells in the past. Insightful and educational. All the exhibits’ explanation was in Chinese and i thought that’s not really tourists friendly. But I saw some Caucasians using the headsets for the explanation.

Quite a big area and apparently, the entire place is still work-in-progress. Entry is free just that foreigners will need to register at the counter with their passports.

We had a great time here. The Museum is well laid out did holds some spectacular exhibits and all of this is free of charge! The highlight is the tomb itself and the burial suit. The main exhibit locations have English explanations but the temporary parts did not. I did find a staff member that speaks English which was helpful. Don’t miss this if you are nearby.

The Mausoleum Museum of the Nanyue King contains the most ancient and largest Han dynasty tomb. There are many fine relics on display, including jade carvings, burial shrouds, porcelain pillows, and more.

This is Guangzhou's prime tourist attraction and attracts a huge local crowd. The mausoleum is better heard of than viewed in person, though. The museum tries to enrich the visitor experience with some seasonal exhibition but it is quite unappealing. The mausoleum is pretty small too. Only the jade collection can interest tourists. Admission is cheap, though.

A historical emperor tomb dating back more than 2000 years that was found by chance in the 80s. Well preserved tomb and a nice museum contains all the artifacts found. Very much worth a visit for anyone interested in history.

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.

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.

A surprisingly good visit. Good to have a journey to explore the history of Canton. Highly recommended for those interested in history.
