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.

Great place for local history and souveniers. The jade displays were very beautiful, and the tomb that is on display is amazing. The best part was the ancient bells.
