This complex of museums doesn't have a whole lot to offer, but will pass an hour or so in Jingzhou. It's moderately air conditioned, which helps a little in the miserable summer heat. The main building was only half open in August 2016 and the focus is on bronze work. Behind the main building is the art centre, of which... More

The ceramic figures at the Jingzhou Museum are wonderful and the molds for these figures too. Pieces of ancient silk and also a few pieces of clothing are very well displayed. The amazing thing is the over 2000 year old mummy, a pink body that can be seen by looking down into a rectangular pit - looks like floating in... More

Jingzhou was our last port on our 5 day, 4 night Yangtze River cruise. After we disembarked, our bus drove through the town directly to the museum . I really didn’t know what we expected to see and I thought just another museum showing artifacts. Our guide led us past 2 wooden coffins and then we walked upstairs to the... More

The museum is housed in traditionally styled buildings surrounding a large pond. There are many types of exhibit from textiles to a well preserved mummy. The souvenirs are of good quality, and of types we didn’t see elsewhere, so a good place to pick up a momento.

We visited the museum as part of our tour of China, we were allowed 2 hours here and quite frankly it was to long, You could easily see the contents of this small museum in an hour. The highlight is a preserved mummy from the Han dynasty , which still has his teeth and skin attached if you like that... More

This museum has different buildings which seem to float on water in some areas. It's lovely on the inside and has many artifacts and a corpse that's is well preserved by being buried 10 meters underground. The mummy from the Han Dynasty is displayed in a see through case. He is completely intact with 3- teeth, flexible joints and supple... More

This museum is quite small, but worth the trip. A mummy is there from the Han Dynasty. Found completely intact, 32 teeth, supple skin, flexible joints. Lacquer ware from the same tomb area. Beautiful silk preserved with recreated pieces to show the color and handiwork.

The museum opened parts of the exhibition areas for the tour groups on Sinorama Gold 8 when we docked in Yichang. It was their holiday and a few staff were nice enough to be there for us. We saw the corpse, the silk and embroidery exhibitions and they even had the gift shop opened. One thing nice about it was... More

We came here on a tour and really enjoyed our approach and walk around the grounds. Part of the museum appears to be floating on the water. The 2000 year old mummy is notable. It is well displayed due to its burial deep in the earth and surrounded by dirt. The corpse has been studied and now on display with... More
