  • Must confess that it does not intend to walk out, but would like to join the room disappointing? Want to get tickets at no cost, but remove the Passport to show it before check-in. bags even though I is not comparable to a Museum in Shanghai, but it feels like impression. There are sections in front of the room are Chinese English sheet document, read some faculty have guided sightseeing, walking, but see for yourself. If interested, read more books, it took On the second floor will be a lot of Tibet story. In addition, the exhibit also has seat vdo. Calligraphy room to traverse town, read. All the parts can take pictures without the use of flet. Bathroom is clean, with services like paper.

  • Due to lack of time, we have only the Department with historical pictures and pots from the Han-time views. It shall cover a period of 2000 years. Very old and very well-preserved. Many images from the "ordinary life" Also fine it in English there.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • 藏品丰富,但一部分张大千的书画迁到了成都博物馆新馆去了,遗憾。
  • 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
