Made the mistake of visiting this museum during China’s National Holiday period. I think there was more than 10,000 standing in line to get in. My family and I had made ticket purchases online and the line moved along quite quickly. The exhibits were well...More

I spent 2 hours visiting the part of the museum dedicated to the tomb of the King’s wife. The mommy itself is impressive in how well preserved it is (May be the hair is a bit too much) but the entire display was very appealing...More

Beautiful, big newly renovated museum. Free admission but bring your passport. Ancient tomb finds including a mummy. History of Hunan. More than enough for a day trip.

I think this is one of the best museums I have been to in China. From the front entrance to the exit it is a place of wonder.

Spacious and modern. But only introduction panels for each room are in English. No English translations for the exhibits. Only Chinese. It is an important museum and there should be more English. Plus too crowded.
