This is a small museum with some artifacts in it but mainly the one long pit with the horses and carriages. The horses are real - you are looking at their skeletons, whereas the carriage wheels are the impressions of the wheels in the mud....More

This is a fantastic museum to spend an hour in. Because Luoyang is the the location for the King City in ancient time, there are a lot of relics. The carriage was excavate during one of the building digs and they preserved the space by...More

This is the site, where a supposedly imperial carriage (since it was pulled by six horses) from the Western Zhou was found. Unfortunately, this is another poorly kept and managed local museum. Poor lighting (to say the least), not well exhibited or described, and uninterested...More

This is a very small museum with the main point of interest being the relics of 6 horses pulling an emperors carriage. If you are really interested in history, then perhaps get a guide to explain it all for you, otherwise I don't think it...More

I didn't expect to see such a nicely presented dig site. This is one of the more important sites for Luoyang's history and the small information hall has bilingual if not multilingual descriptions.

This is a very small excavation, interesting with a little museum of artefacts. The staff are very nice and when we went it was very quiet, just before closing. If you are walking past pop in but unless you are particularly interested don't go out...More
