Stopped at the BanPo Museum on our way back from visiting the Terracotta Warriors, for a visit of about 60 minutes. The site date from about 4,800 BC, and the museum offers some remarkable insights into life in the Neolithic period in China.

Our hired taxi took us here before going to see the Teracotta Warriors. It’s well worth the 60-90 minutes to visit. I never knew about this place, and never had seen 6,000 year-old relics and archaeological ruins. Excellent.

Neolithic settlements remind me how closely we humans are related and how many early populations around the world used similar methods. Wooden frames for their huts reminded me they might just as easily been made Iroquois.

The excavation site takes us back to an ancient civilization that once inhabited this area dating back 5000 years.This neolithic village was discovered in the 1950s. I found it interesting but only for about a half hour and then I was ready to leave.There were a couple of gift shops that helped use up the rest of the hour! While we waited for the rest of our group, we were entertained by a local playing a musical instrument that produced a sound much like a pan flute.

It is an interesting place with a lot of history. It presents the ancient lifestyle of people before the start of the dynasties. The excavation sites have human remains and artifacts. It is not a huge place and only takes about an hour.

The BanPo Museum provided an outstanding opportunity to look back 5000 years at a civilization that inhabited the area that now resides under the museum cover. The excavation has been carefully done and the exhibits look fresh and new. There is plenty of english subtitles. Our guide, Grace Xue, provide from the Hyatt Regency provided additional commentary. We would highly recommend her if you stay at the Hyatt.

Really interesting slice of ancient pre-history in this Neolithic village discovered in the 1950s, and archaeologists have yet to piece it all together. (e.g. are some of the markings on carved rocks recovered in the excavation a form of proto-writing?)

Felt the museum did not explain well how the prehistoric people acquired their building and living technology nor how comparable civilisations were evolving elsewhere

This was an optional part of a tour to see the Terracotta Army but was definitely worth it. The museum shows ancient dwellings in a very interesting way. A must see if you can fit it into your day.
