The museum is rather small. Still, we spent about an hour and a half there. Conducting some research before going will definitely enrich your experiences. After all, we are talking about East Zhou Dynasty, well over 2000 years ago. We followed a guide to hear the basic story of the museum. Then we went into great details of each section... More

This partially excavated grave site is rather like a very small version of parts of the famous Xian warrior pit. Its mainly the remnants of buried chariots and horses. well worth an hour

Quite central in Luoyang, this mausoleum is really worth the visit. It is very small, less than one hour would be enough. All the carriages are in a big central pit which is the main interest of this place. We could use more explanations in english though

I go to this museum every time I'm in Luoyang. It is amazing how well preserved these horses, dog ( it takes a little to find it) and carages are. They also have other artifacts of the period and a small gift shop. They have done a nice job upgradeing the signs in English. You can do the tour in... More

The museum is built over the sacrificial pit area for the Emperors in Eastern Zhou Dynasty 770BC - 256 BC. So the site has been there for over 2000 years. Mind blowing to say the least. The pits predate the Terra Cotta warriors of Xi'an. In the pit you see various chariots driven by horses. The more horses the higher... More

The best part of the Museum is the excavation site, it's such an interesting history of how everything was buried with the Emperor, the Chinese Government have done an amazing job of preparation work to show us what the remains looked like from all those years ago. Quite eerie to see horses lined up or side by side by their... More

You will be surprised to see how the carriage was arranged and designed for the emperor thousand years ago. The remains were well preserved and you can even see the remains of their pet dog as well. It is an eye opener.

The emperor Carriage museum is well worth visiting. The museum itself is not very special, but the real draw is the open excavation of the ancient tomb site. In ancient China Emperors were buried with everything they would need in the afterlife. An Emperor's horses would have been some of his most prized possessions. The tombs themselves have been moved,... More
