  • A trip to this museum is well worth your time. I love both ancient and contemporary Asian art, but you will see 3000 year old art drawn in "perspective" that wasn't even attempted in Europe until 700 years ago. I spent about 4.5 hours wandering around this place and should have spent the entire day. I highly recommend visiting this museum.
  • 张大千馆和青铜器馆很不错~可惜租的讲解器并不好用,需要自己输入文物编号才有讲解,而且内容很晦涩,专业术语太多,普通人很难听懂
  • 每到一个地方都会去博物馆,四川博物馆还不错,正好碰上展览,拍了很多好照片
