The museum is very conveniently located, now that line 2 metro is in operation.
The site itself is quite expansive and green. There's two architectural building to see - the relic hall and the exhibition hall. I would recommend going to the relic hall first to view the actual archeological dig site. This will give depth and context when you see the artifacts in the exhibition.
The artifacts were amazingly well preserved (most are still intact), considering the civilisation existed over three thousand years ago. There's five exhibition halls. Started from top and make your way down. Exhibition halls one and two is on the second floor, third and four on the first floor while the "ground floor" contains hall 5, sovenir shop and the 4D cinema.
JinSha is an important part in China's history, therefore a must for all chinese history buffs. The 4D clip was quite cheesy but is very entertaining (cost 20RMB and lasts 15minutes).
Definitely worth the visit if you have half a day to spare in ChengDu.

The museum is easy to get to, as it's a ten-minute walk from metro line 2. One building shows the archaeological site and the other features artifacts from the site. Both are quite interesting. In addition, the grounds of the museum are a lovely park to walk around. Good for half a day if you are interested in archaeological artifacts.

Not too far out, this museum is at the site of a relatively recent discovery. The artifacts from the civilization living here 3,000 years ago is interesting and different than that which I have seen elsewhere in China.

We had a spare day in Chengdu after seeing the panda's the day before, so we thought we would check out this museum. Considering the price of other tourist attractions in China, this is a little gem. It has interesting sites, clean and cosy exhibition halls and brilliantly maintained gardens. We happily spent half a day here and learnt a whole lot too. Well worth a visit albeit slightly out of town.
