Good presentation of artifacts, lacking English
Jun 2014
The museum spans across two magnificent buildings. As you enter the courtyard, the building on the right contains four levels (the fourth is not currently open) of historical artifacts and artwork from across the various dynasties and beyond. The building straight ahead is more dedicated to the "heroes" of Zhucheng, who include poets, writers, martyrs for the communist cause and well-known communist party members. Some helpful advice for non-speakers of Chinese, you will need to get a free ticket to enter the museum. This is found in the first building on the right as you enter the courtyard, then on the far right of the steps. You will need to show your photo ID which they will scan, then they will give you a locker to store your things and a receipt. This is all free of charge. The first museum displayed a large range of stone engraved artifacts and sculptures, scrolls of calligraphy and Chinese art, porcelain and clay pottery, stone stamps and ink trays, jade sculptures, ancient tools and weapons and some photos and modern art depicting the history of Zhucheng and it's present and future. There are English titles on most placards but the descriptions are only in Chinese. There are also few dates mentioned, only the dynasty or period the artifacts come from e.g. Qing, Ming etc. The second museum is difficult to take in without being able to read Chinese, but it appears to be mostly a shrine to the heroes of communism. The first museum's English descriptions of each room also seem to bolster the greatness of the city of Zhucheng. Perhaps this is why the museum is free of charge as it may be used to spread propaganda. The first museum is worth visiting if you have time to kill, and there is not much in this town for foreigners to kill time on. P.S. there are no dinosaurs here despite what the photos show
