“Chengdu's new museum, not to be missed!”
Reviewed February 20, 2008

Jinsha Relicsite Museum, opened less than a year ago, is related to, and less well known than Sanxing Dui Museum. But it is likely to become just as important a tourist site for culture and history lovers. Although located inside a major city, the carefully-preserved relic site is situated in a park-like setting . The museum complex is made up of several well-designed, state-of-the-art exhibit halls. Admission is 60 RMB. The 4-D show, starting every 30 minutes and charging 20 RMB, is quite fun and a nice way to enjoy a short rest. Also worth visiting is the museum gift-shop, which is well-stocked with tastefully chosen items. The museum's own DVD, with English subtitles, is a good buy at 30 RMB. Finally, the museum is easily reached by taxi from the centre of Chengdu. (The trip takes 15-20 minutes and should cost around 20 RMB).

“Mystery, mystery, mystery!”
Reviewed May 6, 2006

It is very sad to see while so many people look forward to seeing giant pandas in Chengdu, so few people know about Sanxingdui Museum. The museum was built on the excavation site. It was about 16 Century B.C. Same period as Egyptian Civilization. The bronze masks look very sophisticated but at the same time so strange. (You should find out how starange they are for yourselves.) The reason why the museum is not so popular may be because it has been recently built and many guidebooks have not updated information. To be honest, I can not think of any other reasons. It is a must-see in Chengdu second only to giant pandas. I guarantee.
