Banpo culture existed 6700 years ago, and this place the part of the oldest chinese history! You will see the real "china" they made 6700 years ago! This is just amazing!!! At this place you will feel the ancient time of China.

This museum gives a strong historical context. It's an easy to navigate museum. It is good for individuals and families alike to walk through. The Banpo Museum shows the craftsmanship and resourcefulness of the indigenous people. Great!

It is rare to see a 6000 year old archeological site and this one is in the middle of the city! Mostly what you see are the foundations of the village and skeleton bones of Neolithic people. Some English posted. Best to have a guide.

The museum nicely displays the original location of part of the village as well as showing, in a large diorama, its location in the surrounding area. There are descriptions in english, which are extremely helpful given that the displays need explanation. One wall explained how...More
