If you have time to kill, it’s a suitable diversion for up to one hour. The building is somewhat old and in need of refurbishment. Displays are rather typical of many Chinese museums, including the obligatory paean to the CCP. One hall is dedicated to...More

First meteorite museum ever seen by me. Very good display and planetarium show. There are also several beautiful sculptures made from wood recovered from the bottom of the local river. There is also a historical museum in the same location.

I don't go to many museums but my friend took me here. It tells the story of a huge meteor hit in Jilin. It is done very well. There are good graphics, movie and sound effects. .

I would give it 5 stars if it wasn't for the crazy 80RMB entrance price! Half an hour is enough to visit the whole exibition. The planetarium show is nice and clear also to non-chinese speakers. The meteorites are very cool and it's great that...More

The exhibits in the entrance hall are free and well presented with bilingual signs. The exhibition on aluminium artwork was particularly good. The main event however is the meteorite hall where you are shown the history of the largest modern meteorite shower to hit China....More
