This complex of museum-tombs-gardens and other buildings is really interesting and adds more value to the Yangzhou Trip. Of course the main (the most known) attraction of Yangzhou is the Slender Lake, where you can buy the ticket to enter the lake but there are options that can allow you to visit more attractions with the same ticket. Thus, either you can buy a 'combination' ticket (Ticket Office of Slender Lake, e.g. Combination Ticket 200RMB) including this museum or you can buy a ticket at the entrance of this museum (30RMB) in order to visit it. In order to find this museum-tombs you have also 2 options: a) You take a taxi and go directly there b) Once you exit the Northern Gate of Slender Lake Park-Area turn right, and walk for a while having next to the river. Ok it might take longer this way but you will enjoy a really good walk until you reach the museum.
The complex is consisted of the following: King's Tomb, Queen's Tomb, Gardens and Kiosks, an original small tomb relocated and placed in the gardens, entertainment building/area for Kids. It is indeed a very informative museum, not only about the way the wooden tombs were used to be built but also for the life, art, customs and history of the ancient Chinese nobility. You will probably spend there, more than an hour, without even noticing it. Certainly, it is well recommended.

This was one of the few places on our China tour where we were able to get a sense of ancient, pre-Buddhist China. The tomb reconstruction is interesting, as are the exhibits on the surrounding walls, mostly labeled in passable English. A highlight is the jade burial suite of the ancient king

It is not a top tourist attraction, but I was actually impressed by its presentation. My father is a historian in the area. He told me the actual tomb is not in Yangzhou, but in Gaoyou County. But the leaders in Yangzhou wanted more tourist attractions and Gaoyou is administered under Yangzhou, so here we are.
There are two wooden tomb chambers, all built with special poplar wood. This type wood is highly valued for burial because it does not rot. We can still see it two thousand years later. Using this wood to make a casket is considered rich, let alone building entire burial chamber? One chamber is for a regional king and the other is for his wife.
a little caution for seniors--the museum is on top of a hill, with a lot of steps. There is not elevators. After you climb up, you still need to climb down into burial chamber. A lot of steps.

Probably, the location is not in the center of city, it's an off-beaten and less tourists site in Yangzhou. This place is only for the people who are instereted in Chinese architecture and Chinese culture. I enjoyed it so much. The fancinating wooden structure which was a typical tomb in the Han dynasty ( 202BC-220AD)。Even there is bathroom in the tomb. the wooden ladders left by robbers show us how did the tomb robbers worked in the ancient time. You can't miss this place definitely. our guide was very informative, he showed us aroud this tomb around 45 minutes. You will get much better experience if you hire a guide to explain for you. otherwise, it's hard to appreciate the miracle of the remarkable wooden structure. The entrance ticket is 30 yuan.

This may not be for everyone, but these ancient wooden tombs are remarkable to me. The way they were built and subsequently robbed is an interesting part of Chinese history. I would definitely stop here if you're sightseeing in Yangzhou.

Interesting place with two tombs that have been moved here lock stock and barrel from 50km away, well laid out with reasonable English signs and a low entrance fee
