I only had about an hour before closing time, but wanted to echo other comments that the museum is well-done. Most of the exhibits are bilingual (Chinese and English), and the English text is very clear. In our short time, we viewed exhibits on regional history related to the Silk Road, history of the Xixia kingdom, and more recent history of Chairman Mao in Ningxia. I definitely would like to return!

A couple things to know -- the museum is closed on Mondays, and otherwise open from 9:00 a.m. until 4:50 p.m. Best of all, it's free.

We are very impressed with the information was displayed in this Museum. Make sure you have enough time to learn everything before you walk over to the Imperial Tombs

The front the 3-story building displays middle eastern architecture and design; the entrance to the museum is guarded by two magnificent qilin. Once inside you can quickly gain an understanding of how Ningxia became the region it is today due to the Silk Road. You'll learn about the Hui ethnic minority group, descending from Silk Road travelers, whose ancestors include Central Asians, Arabs and Persians who married Hans. I highly recommend a visit if you are into Chinese art, history and culture.

I rarely visit museums as I get carried away and don't want to leave. When you're only in a city briefly that prevents you visiting other places of interest. Yinchuan is the exception. On my 3rd visit to the city I'm happy to spend all day here.

it's a great place if you are a fan of the mystery miyag. And what's more, the cliff painting can bring you back to ten thousands of years, breathtaking by the wits of ancient human.

This was a very well curated museum which explains the history of NingXia and YinChuan.

The permanent exhibit includes the petroglyphs of Neolithic NingXia, the histories, religions, arts of the area. And there is a special section concerning the Silk Road and YinChuan.

The museum is well worth the visit and answered some questions I had regarding NingXia and its situation with the neighboring province of GanSu.

I spent about 2 hours one afternoon in the Ningxia Museum. It exhibits are related to the Ningxia people and its history from prehistoric to now. There is a very interesting rock collection on the main floor. They look like food such as beef, pork bellies, cheeses, nuts, etc. Quite amazing. it is worth a quick visit.
