The Luoyang Museum is just wonderful for many reasons. First the building is how one expects a museum to be - large and impressive. The exhibits on display are quite extraordinary especially those of the Tang Dynasty. You simply must check out the Horse Breaker and the Horse sculpture. Of course, there were other types of exhibits - calligraphy, pottery,... More

If you only have time for one museum in Luoyang, go to the tomb museum. Come here if you have time. This is a modern museum with a good collection of Chinese artefacts dating from the Neolithic period onwards. Of particular note are the Shang and Zhou bronzes and the tomb artefacts, pottery and everyday items from the Han period-Song... More

I don't know why this place doesn't have more (and better) reviews. As far as museums go, this one is amazing. The ceramic collection is astounding, as good as any I've seen anywhere. For such a relative backwater city (Luoyang), the museum is very well-organized, with a clear and coherent display... and, of course, free. It is, admittedly, a bit... More

Having been the Tang dynasty capital for a few hundred years before Xi'an, Luoyang is a treasure hunt ground for archaeologists. The city is under heavy reconstruction and every new dig reveals historic treasures. Most of them end up in the fabulous and quiet Luoyang Museum. Do not miss it.

Part of a China Discovery Tour for a group of eight teachers. We spent an hour and a half here but could have spent longer. Nearly all the displays had English explanations.A visual tour of major dynasties represented in Luoyang

Wonderful museum. The ticket is free, please prepare your passport to receive your ticket. It has a lot precious items from many dynasties. Very nice experience. It might be easier to go there from old city by taxi. For us it cost 16 rmb .

A taxi costs you Rmb 16 from Luoyang Longmen station. It is very new and clean and well laid out. It's more on ancient China. Unfortunately the city itself has nothing to offer. There is storage cubicles for your luggage and a big bag can be accommodated. Currently, everything is free, including entry and luggage storage. The museum shop provided... More

Interesting and free museum. This museum has a wide variety of displays from history to art. Many of their art forms interested peonies such as calligraphy, painting, and pottery. Across the street is a huge park to walk through as well.

I claimed in the title that Luoyang City Museum may be the best city museum in China, and with good reason. Luoyang was the capital of the Eastern Zhou, Eastern Han, and several minor Dynasties, and a secondary capital of the Tang and Northern Song. A lot of history took place there, and many tombs have been excavated to provide... More

There are so many wonderful museums in China, but this one is up there due to the quality and focus of the displayed collection. If you like Shang, Zhou, Qin Han and Tang - dont miss this one
