Fantastic collection of diverse artifacts, well laid out and documented. Don't miss it. It gets busy, so start early.

“Exceptional Collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Note that the museum is closed on Mondays (many guidebooks omit this detail). A walk there from Xiaozhai metro-subway station (with various malls in the vicinity) along East Xiaozhai Road takes about 20-25 minutes.

“A top-notch museum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

The exhibits are arranged chronologically, by dynasties. So if you are any kind of student of Chinese history, this is the place. They are heavy on the Tang dynasty, but the do a good job on the earlier ones, like the Han.

“A great place to understand Chinese Civilization”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Great museum, explanations in English are really good. It also allows you to better appreciate the Terracotta Warriors. You may need a guide, though, to really see the best things among the huge amounts of artworks displayed.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Very informative for kids and adults alike. We enjoyed the visit a lot. Lots of places to discover. It was on two floors and on the second floor they have a second part. For museum lovers this is definitely a treat.
