Sichuan Museum, Chengdu

4.2
#4 of 14 in Museums in Chengdu
See rare historical relics and ancient artwork at Sichuan Museum, which displays over 250,000 items. Begin at the exhibits of pottery from the Hand Dynasty, then continue to the displays of bronze items and the section containing Tibetan Buddhist relics. Across several exhibit halls, you can see ceramics, stone sculptures, ancient coins, folk arts and crafts, and calligraphy. The museum also allows visitors to learn more about the cultures of local ethnic minorities, displaying their clothing, musical instruments, and other objects. Host to regular temporary exhibits, the museum frequently shows modern art from around the world. Check the website for more details.

  • The first time I went to this place, but there was a different view of the museum, because he let us see history from porcelain, also let us understand the shadow, to me that no longer just see people do, but know how to see the character, really great!

  • It is not a very big museum but it has a good mix of everything. For museum lovers, it will be a good place to spend sometime here, the casual visitors may be disappointed as the display is not very stimulating visually. However, it is a good place to visit if you are planning to visit the Huan Hua Xi Gong Yuan as it is part of it.
  • Visit this museum many times, the cultural relics are really delicate, it indeed deserved to visit.
  • 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.
  • Very impressive Museum

Where to stay in Chengdu

The vast majority of visitors to Chengdu look for their accommodations along Tianfu Avenue, the main arterial road that cuts the southern district of the modern city in two. Upmarket and standard hotels can be found along the road and its surrounding side streets, overlooking pleasant plazas and parks, or the river that snakes around to the east. Guesthouses and hostels throughout the south provide a welcome range of budget accommodations, but heading to the more built-up and residential northern area will reveal a greater amount of particularly cost-effective options.
