The displays contain some items that are thousands of years old. Most exhibits have English explanations. Very interesting history. Well worth the time. Not heated in winter. Be prepared.

Really interesting exhibits with English translation throughout. The highlight was the 2000 year old corpse in building by the lake which was fascinating.

The Jingzhou Museum was a pleasant surprise. There are a lot of things to look at, including jade, textiles, and various artifacts...and be sure you don't miss visiting Han Tomb 168 and seeing the well preserved male corpse!

This is a good museum with plenty of artifacts including textiles and the mummy of a wealthy person. His brain has been removed and can be seen along with his entrails. It's a rather macabre sight but it is a museum. The grounds around the...More
