This museum is a place to see. There is a lot to see about how this tomb was found and lot's of the items found are on display. There are a few video's with english subltitles. It was really a learning experience about that time. English titles and explanations are on the exhibits. It is a big museum so we didn't feel crowded at all. even with tour groups also there. Going down into the original tomb area was great. it is a bit low so be prepared to bend over if you are over 5 ft 7 inches or 170 centimeters. We spent a few hours just visiting all the exhibits. Defintely worth a stop

A must see sight in Guangzhou. The tomb itself is not that large but has many rooms, with remains of concubine still visible after over 2000 years. The location of the tomb in the middle of Guangzhou is incredible with so much activities. The other parts of museum very informative too. A good place to spend an hour or so browsing and seeing the videos about those times and practices.

Please do not waste your time at this museum, unless you are interested in seeing the types of funerary objects that were placed with him in the tomb chambers. The museum building looks gaudy and out of place too.

Just brilliant! Although only discovered in 1983. The 2000 year excavation site was opened in tact and the enormous quantity of atrifacts recovered now has been preserved in the most wonderful museum for all to experience.

I have been to another tomb in Beijing, did not get this close. You can go into the tomb and view the rooms, pictures of pre restoration, even the concubines remains..which are little more than gravel looking stuff but can see some bone fragments..When the Emperor died many of his staff and concubines were buried with him for the afterlife. No real story on how all those people died at the same time..
Lot's of history, good rainy day gig. My wife lived across the street growing up it was a hill at the time, the tomb was found in the early 80's making room for apartments. Line 2 yuexiu park, use exit E, go right when you get to the side walk, it is the next building. Buy the ticket street level, 12 rmb.
