Great Collection

Collection of the artifacts and the explanation of ancient China history was great. The special exhibit was the mummified corps. You should check it out !

Still closed. Don't trust the previous review. Due to the previous rewiev we came there today hoping that it will be open, but it is not. Loss of the time.

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.

I can't believe anyone wrote that this museum was only worth coming to for the mummy. Yes, the mummy is incredible, but there are 2000 year old millet cakes, 2000 year old everyday personal artifacts and clothing that belonged to this woman that are in almost perfect condition! It's almost like you get a real window into the past. This... More

this one was excellent. Worth the time to queue up and see just what came out of those tombs, and in such condition after all those centuries.

We were not given any warning that this musuem is closed. If we had known, we would have planned other things. Waste 1.5 days.

The museum has a fruitful collection of historical items in various kinds, eg. pottery, ceramics, bronze, stones, textiles, calligraphy; many of them were uncovered from the big Han Dynasty tomb, including the well preserved mummy lady Dai. The admission fee is waived at the moment; not sure how long will this offer last.
