  • What I like most of museums (which no temples or other places of tourist interest) is that or either are free or offer good discounts to students (although only if you are a Chinese student). This in particular offers a wide variety of exhibitions of Chinese culture and especially of Sichuan. The only thing, which is perhaps a little small. Is near others gardens, so it best is visit it a weekend or when there is time to enjoy it fully.

  • 三層樓的建築,以天圓地方的概念來設計展館。每層樓的展示都有漢朝的影響與蜀地的特色,無論是陶、銅、玉、繡、書法、張大千展,皮影、漢墓出土文物等,都及其所能的展現文化。這時期還有過紅軍特展。 
  • We were not expecting much given the other reviews of this museum, so we were quite surprised at the variety of the exhibits. The English explanations were no better or worse than in Chinese museums o...  more »

  • 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
