Lishui Museum
Feb 2018 • Friends
When friends come to visit Lishui (Liandu County), this is one of the first places I take them. It's in a beautiful park setting next to the gorgeous Lishui Bridge, Lake, and temple-like astronomy building. Also, it's free! The museum itself doesn't have any English explanations, but I feel like one does not need to read Chinese to appreciate the various exhibits.

Starting from the left after entering security, one is introduced to various counties in Lishui. The exhibits take you through the land formation of the area, from the time of the dinosaurs, to the samples of the local flora and wild animals. The museum has recreated the history of Lishui's growth as an ancient city - shown through archaeological digs and neat interactive maps. Famous sites in Lishui are shown (such as the famed wooden bridges and local ethnic tribes).

My favorite of the exhibits is the one with ancient swords and beautiful jade sculptures. The one with tiny shoes for practice of binding noblewomen's feet is intriguing, too. Depending on how long one spends gazing at the many items here, a full run of the museum takes about an hour or less.

After visiting the museum, I highly recommend visiting the nearby astronomy building and feeding its many fish with the locals! To go up the top of the astronomy building is 35 kuai per person. Fish food at a nearby guard stand is 2 kuai per bag.

Why not take in some local culture and see a museum? Free admission means you have little to lose. Also, visit the Photography Museum.
