The Museum is tucked away behind a Park. There were only two rooms open even though its a large building. One room had ethnic jewelry and clothing and was mildly interesting and the other room was full of what looked like Building Approval documents. There is no English anywhere so if you don't read Chinese you will be confused. Give... More

We became aware that the museum had a Flying Tiger display of memorabilia, pictures and information. As this is one of my favorite subjects, we gathered a dozen friends and went there. Some consider the museum difficult to find as it does not front the street. The entry way lane is to the left of the entrance into the Xishan... More

It's in a fairly large but very drab building in which most of the space is locked and boarded up, presenting an abandoned feel. In fact when I visited there were only two rooms of exhibits. The minorities exhibit is poorly presented, display cases without lighting, but plenty of reflections on the glass. The porcelain collection is probably interesting enough... More

Entry to the museum is free which is amazing considering everything else in Guilin has a charge. Only three exhibition halls were open, most of which are well signed in English. I found the minority peoples' exhibit interesting, despite the fact that the museum does have a run down look and feels insufficiently cared for. Also there is A/C so... More

Don't believe Google Maps. This museum is difficult to find, tucked into the innards of Xishan Park, off the main roads. It's also wildly not worth it, even though I was spared the purported 20 RMB entrance fee. Skip the museum and head straight into Xishan, which you can sneak into without paying during tourist off-season! The museum is largely... More
