Entrance is 35 yuan, and this is a small museum, but well preserved. This sacrificial pit... 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 is worth it. 1 hour is more than enough. Bus 101 runs West along Zhongzhou...

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 of your way.

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
